the wiring for the switch is behind my dash plugged into a dummy port, i got a new switch, and installed it, there is a fuse relay for fog lamps in that box under the hood, but i cant find the wires in the front end for the fogs, it doesn't have any factory fogs, but im installing on the brush guard i got for it, i want it wired like its supposed to be, any ideas...? id like to know where the wires are and what color they are...
I added factory fogs to my truck last year. The truck does not have the wiring in place, you will need to do your own wiring for it.
I did however make mine work with the factory fog light switch, momentary push button on/off. Took 5 relays but works great. The only factory part I used to contorl them was the switch.

I am trying to wire up some offroad lights on my bumper with the factory fog switch. My truck did not come from the factory with fogs. I got the switch from the junkyard out of a 2003 s10. My truck does have the fog lamprelay with all 4 pins installed in the block. It gets 12v to the 30pin like it should but nothing to the 87 pin when the switch is pressed. The wires for the switch are black, orange, gray, and purple.
Black = Ground
Orange = 12v
Gray = 12v Illumation with the headlights on
Purple = Should be the switch wire correct? well I get no reading at all, just 0v no matter how many times I press the switch with the headlights on or not. I get nothing from the purple wire at all.
Or is there a way to wire the switch so I could use it for my offroad lights and still have it look factory?
Whats the hard way of wiring it so i can use the factory switch?
Yes. No easier way. I have yet to find a bi-polar latching relay that will fit this application. I did not end up using the momentary switch for lights. I used them both for auxiliary transfer pumps.

Is there an easier way?
