I am sorry to have to put up a "no joy" report here.

All the parts came in, the dealer installed, and no light. They hooked the unit up to the BCU and it refused to allow them to "tell" the BCU that the fogs were there. They couldn't (or wouldn't) completely reprogram the BCU (as others have stated here) so they refunded me all the unused parts (switch and harness) and only charged me labor for the install of the light units. I have since wired the lights using a tap-a-fuse in the slot for rear wipers (none on a sedan, but the circuit and fuse are there, 15amp) and it is only on when ignition is in the "run" position, so my fogs are like driving lights, which is how I use them anyway. All is fine with me, but it would have been cool to have them be like "factory". Strange company, this modern day FoMoCo.
