    I realize this is an old thread...I wired my light to the Toyota switch and the light doesn't come on when the switch is turned on. I have power to the switch, power to the light and a ground, when I disconect the ground...the lights still work, just the light(on the switch) doesn't come on. I know it's petty since the lights i'm running are working, I'd just like the litch to come on too. Any input???

    Looks like the bulb in the switch is bad, I wired a second set the same way and the light on the switch works...

    Some one else asked you if you'd received anything about this and you said "you've got mail" can you send that my way too? My foglights work but when I let out the button they turn off. as long as i hold the button in they work. i assume the button is failing and i need to take it out and mess with it. thx

    So Since my fogs work when i hold in the switch but stop when I let it out, i reckon the issue must be with the switch. i've removed it. anyone know anything about taking these switches apart or how they work?

    Did anyone find an answer to this?
    I have an otrattw switch in my fog lights but the indicator won't light
    If I swap the leads to the relay, and hook a ground to pin 8, the indicator comes on with the switch off?:annoyed:
