ok here goes nothin:
first find the white with green stripe wire in the coin holder pocket(remove the coin holder first). this will be the acc. power(hot when key is on). wire the lights acording to the instructions.
usually constant hot to a relay then wire to lights from relay. hot from acc. power to a switch then from the other side of switch to relay. and then a ground to relay. the lights themselves will also need a ground(something metal)
this will allow the lights to come on anytime the key is on.

sorry no pics

Dude! He is telling you about a power source that is powered only when the key is turned on. He also told you what wire to run to a switch and then to the relay. I mean how much more controlability do you need? The lights will only work when the key is turned on, and you have the switch for the fog lights to be turned on or off. What he is saying about anytime is you do not have to have the head lights turned on to run the fog lights. It will be wired where you can turn on just the fog lights by themselves or have them on with the headlights. On a factory wired set when you turn on the high beams the fog lights will turn off till you go back to the low beams and the fogs will only work with the headlights on. The way he told you allows you to keep them on whenever in any headlight position (high/low beams). When you turn the ignition key off it kills the fog lights because your power is coming from a key controlled power source.
