The hardest part was trying to figure out what all those pictures in the instructions were trying to tell you what to do. The part with the switch was 4 steps, no wording on what to do, with the same picture for all four steps. That is why I did the how to in the first place. It's like a rocket science instruction booklet from Ikea.

That was it, once we found out the plug was reversed we just flipped the wires around and plugged it up and boom! There was light.

Very nice! With the new switch can you run the fogs all by themselves?

With this set up you can run the fogs while the parking lights, low beams and high beams are on. Sadly you can't run em by themselves, but if you have the projector headlights the parking lights are LED's and a halo of light
