    So I installed my dual Hella Black Magic behind the grill headlights and I ordered the factory fog light switch from the stealership for a factory look. Only thing is, it's a 4 prong switch that requires a plug on the back side that it didn't come with. For my 3 wires. The guy at the stealership told me he could only find it where I purchase the entire harness and wiring with the plug. I could use some other switch but I already paid $70 bucks for this one. (dumb idea!) oh well it's already done. So I looked around and found some similar threads but nothing that helps. IDK maybe I'll just keep the cheap-o-switch I got and waste the $70 bucks. It Don't look bad. I want to move on to bigger and better mods! hahah So if anyone knows, please drop some info. Otherwise F it! Some other time.:pout:

    Just to tick you off, the OEM light switch is U$25 on Ebay.

    There are 4 terminals on the switch. Two are for the backlight, the other two are for the actual switching. A multimeter will let you figure out which terminals do what.
    In my install I didn't bother with a factory connector. I soldered two wires with plugs on the two on/off metal traces of the switch. Didn't bother with backlight.

    It's funny this thread came up. I don't have a link at the moment, but I think a bunch of guys over on the FJC forums had this discussion. I think someone ended up finding a switch just like the factory one, but with only 3 standard prongs. I think they ordered from Allied electronics or Digikey. Something like that. In any case it was way cheaper than buying a factory button and special harness.

    Took that part # to the stealership and it turned out to be a single terminal wire. That's it! So, I'm just going to solder the wires onto the switch. :D

    Huh? I just and I mean just got back from the dealership picking up the switches using the part number provided in this thread and the two switches I got are both three terminal switches. Not sure what your dealership ordered you or did you order the push button?

    Yeah, I got the push button. Same as the fog light push button switch. IDK Why the came up with just a terminal wire. I used the second part # and that's what it came up with. Oh well, soldering should work

    Guys I put the OEM fog light switch in the position to the right of the factory fog light switch (Traction Control Switch location I believe) for a DTRL kill switch. When I popped out the blank cover there already was a plug there, and it was wired. All four wires were installed in the plug. This pic is of that prewired connector after I pulled the two of wires for the LED out.

    [​IMG]

    If your vehicle did not come with a fog lights from factory, you may have the connector already wired behind your blank cover. I don't know for sure because mine had fog lights from the factory. So I reused the two for the LED on my new switch, because they are already were wired to come on with my lights.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Note that the all of the switches are keyed to go into a certain place on the dash, so I had to modify my new fog light DTRL switch to fit in the open location.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a pic of the new DTRL kill switch. I need to find a way to label them 'FOG' and 'DTRL' Any Ideas?

    I got switch part number 00550-35976 from the dealership for $9. It is not the same as the fog light switch but still is a direct fit & uses 3 wires. It is a rocker style, not push button. It looks good imo, like it belongs there.

    Damn! I wish I would have paid closer attention to your post PSUnick. I only paid attention to how to make the switch fit into the slot by removing the notch. I didn't know I could remove the wires with the metal tabs. I cut the wires and pulled them out then re soldered them on. alot of extra work I didn't need to do. Whatever, it's done and working now. Heres what it looked like.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Alot more work as you can see. Hahah Live n learn! I'm just glad it works:D Great post though man!
