Well, one more thing to save for, or consider ebay for.

Edit: also, I'm going to svsu for mechanical engineering =) 2-3 more semesters to go.

The 2013 SE without fog lamps can't just add the switch and harness and get the fog lamps to work. This has been tried before, well at least not with the stock switch and wiring due to the dealers either being unwilling to not enter a vin into the ids tool, or not willing to flash the as built codes for a car that has the exact same equipment + the fog lamps as your current car.

Some of the wiring is there on the 13s that was not there on the 12s, but for the 2012 without fog lamps they had to resort to wiring in an alternate switch and basically building their own mirrored lighting control box so as to not risk damaging the body control module.

It was covered here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=290882 for the 2012

And here for the 2013: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...8&postcount=18
