    I finally got in one of my factory fog switches with the harness and 4 connectors. Now, how in the heck do I hook it up to my fog lights? I found this picture of what each plug is but it might as well be in German because I have no idea where each one should go. If someone could help me out with this I would be much abliged!

    ok from what i remember the top 2 connections (on the stock fog light switch) are the "trigger" or in this case completes the circuit to work...

    the diagram below, i used it to wire up some fog lights on another members truck a while back...might help you a bit :thumbsup: i cant be to sure because i need to be able to see all the stuff in order for me to tell you :(
