    Ok so I'm gonna use the fj cruiser aux light switch. I know how it wires up. My question is the spare connectors behind the lower blanks. I need the parking light circuit. Does it exist in these spare plugs. Or where is the easiest spot to find that circuit and ground close by?

    Ok so with no answer here, I did a little r&d myself. I wanted to put the switch in the middle blank between the factory fog, and inverter. I used a long screw driver from up though the coin/fuse door to pop out the middle blank. Well to my surprise there was a green plug that looked just like the one I got for the fj switch. Figuring the wiring was the same I tested the prongs on the green plug. The bottom green wire was the parking light hot, and the green with white stripe was the ground. So using a cut fork stake on I taped into the parking ct. With no splicing. Now all I have left to do is run the switch leg to the relay, and bring a hot to the switch. Super EASY!
