Exclamation WANTED- FOG LIGHT SWITCH

I am looking for an OEM fog light switch so I can pop out the extra cover on my dashboard and put in the new one. I want to add some KC fog lights but I don't like the generic toggle switch that came with the kit. I have called around to junk yards and other Toyota OEM online stores but no one carries it ! PLEASE HELP !

Tim

I've seen them on ebay from time to time. The dealer sells it for about $70.

If you buy the aftermarket fogs off of eBay, they usually come with an OEM switch (I put some on an '08, and it came with a 1st gen switch and they sent me a 05+ switch for free). Going that route you'll be able to mount the fog lights in the proper factory position utilizing factory mounting points, AND get a switch too. I'd return the KC kit IMHO.

Usually the switch that comes with ebay kits is not like the stock switch. Be careful!

$70! What dealer you buying from? I bought 2 factory fog switches for 12.00 each to run my hella's. They fit perfect in the factory blanks

I believe it's the FJ cruiser switch. The OEM fog light switch for our Tacoma's are upwards of $50 from a dealership.

Not doubting it looks good in the factory slot, but if you've already got the OEM switch for fogs and want to add a switch for off road lights next to it, some people want them to match. Probably a better option to buy 2 FJ switches vs one Tacoma switch... sadly

You can find them on ebay for 20 bucks. They are rarely found so I bout enough to fill up all the blanks should I have a use for them in the future. Just keep on the hunt for them on ebay and they'll show up eventually.

$70 is the price at the Canadian dealers. $50 for the switch + shipping + the FU Canadians factor that is added = $70.

I have also seen them on ebay for around $20. Another good ebay purchase is the stock fog light relay- I got one for $10. From the dealer- Canada $67!

Almost like the dealer does not want you to add fogs by yourself!

You are correct, it is sad! The oem switch runs $53... for a switch!! I've seen a few wrecks taco's on the back of flat beds going to the junkyard... maybe i'll just follow em (try and jack the XM radio too!)

This is the exact switch I need! How about I send you some FJ switches or a bottle of some great Tennesse whiskey for your switch
