Headlight switch replacement

I think I need a new headlight switch since my dash lights usually all stop working a few seconds after I turn the lights on. My question is will a headlight switch from a car with fogs hook up properly to my wiring harness for my car that does NOT have foglights? Also, is a switch from an SVT car any different from a basic Focus?

Thanks

Fog lights no fog, no difference. Most of these old focus actually have the wiring for fog lights anyway. You can look under the car behind the bumper, mine were tied up to the rad support. Not 100% sure about SVT, but I can't image they would change the switch, the car are basically the same in that respect.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking as well. I ordered the switch and I guess I'll find out. Unfortunately my car was not one to come pre-wired for the fogs.
