one last note, I also compared the switch assembly between my 2001 and 2004 and confirmed that it's 83b on both. Luckily it wasn't changed during it's 4 year existence when in the US.

i guess my question is where would you connect the lines from the harness to the switch? the contact that 83b where does that feed to? to the fuse box? or to one of the relays? i know in the owners manual it says for the 05-07 that relay r21 is for the low beams and the foglamps

It would go to your relay. Again this is for cars that are not pre wired for fog lights.

+1 to Mr Bergner for the info on which pin on the switch it is.

Ill be using this how to this weekend, Im sick of my fogs not working. My car has the oem wiring and I added the oem fogs and they dont work for some reason. So ill just cut the pigtails off and wire em up myself.

Thanks norcal.

Nice Chris, let me ask something I noticed, I already got the plugs up front for fogs, Does that mean I can just get me a pair of fogs and the switch that pulls out, and I got fogs lights?

You may also want to look to make sure you have the relay for the lights but it sounds like your ready for fog lights . And to answer your question , that should be all you need .

Yeah you'll need the lower grill, fog housings, switch, relay, and make sure theres a fuse in the correct spot in the interior fuse panel.

Should work fine. Ive done all this and mine still dont work, not sure why, must be the oem wiring or something. So I figure this how to should do the trick.

Also where did you get the relay? Unless the oem relay will work, yours looks alot different than that though.

Should be able to find the relay at Auto Zone or Radio Shack.
