Ok got it all figured out, it was really easy actually, almost plug and play.

I just have one more thing to do, which is put a wire to pin 83b on the oem headlight switch. What kind of connector did yall use to do this? I dont have one small enough.

Isn't there a wire already coming out of 83b? If so just strip about a 1/8" of the plastic off the wire, wrap the bare end of your wire around it, and electrical tape it up.

see this is where i am stuck at too, i have the OEM, Fog lights, the surrounds, the OEM switch, and the wiring harness. which the harness is not OEM. i have everything routed and it's grounded but i don't have it hooked up to the battery yet, cause i am trying to figure out where the female interface for the male pin 83b leads to, so i can connect it to the switched input on the relay. do i have to drill through the firewall or route it through a grommet that leads to the wiring for the light switch? if our cars are not prewired for fog lights, is there even a line that leads from the light switch on the female receptacle for pin 83b? if there is a line, does it route to a fuse box inside the car or in the engine bay?

Duh I just re-read your question and the part about 83b. I didn't connect to a OEM fog light switch, but I would say you should be able to get a female slip connector to fit on that pin.

You can either...

go through the fire wall, which there are holes already there to slide the one wire through.

or go behind the fender and through the plastic plug in the door jamb.

Alright i found connectors that fit on the pin. Only problem is they dont fit through the harness.

So when i plug it into the back of the switch it cant connect all the way.

You got any extra harnesses laying around? You can pull apart the harness and get the plug and then wire it into your harness.

I sent a PM to Mr.B to help you out as I didn't do it this way so Im a little lost.
