Thanks for being the Guinea pig i guess. Ill post pics tomorrow of my foglight install with a nice button switch in the other foglight thread. Im gonna mount the switch by the shifter beside the e brake handle. The trim piece is removable and replaceable if i wanna go back stock after drilling the hole.

Just for you '12 and '13 owners installing fogs: Don't pay ridiculous prices for the connectors to the bulbs. They're standard H8/13 bulbs, and there are generic connectors at auto parts store for 8 bucks, don't pay 30 or more for OEM ones, nobody but you will ever know. :)

Thanks Chaddz3 for this complete How-To, iŽll try to make it work on my 2013 S at your way, but first iŽll do with the OEM foglamps, arness and switch. Hope works cause i was found a 15amps fuse with teminals on the F75 BCM location.

OPsDad tried the same thing on a 2013 SE with a fuse at F75 and it DID NOT WORK, so I would be REALLY surprised if it works on a 2013 S.

Everything installs, but the fogs don't come on and the dealer doesn't have the option to enable the fogs. (I think it would work if you found a dealer willing to re-flash the BCM with the VIN from a different model that did have fogs (I Limited or SE Appearance Package), but most dealers will not be willing to do that.

Chaddz3's solution with the relays and aftermarket switch should work fine, though.

Best of luck, Sergio. I was asked at my dealer today if I was happy, told them no, because of the fog light issue, primarily, they zeroed out original deal and sold me a Titanium. NOW I'm a happy camper (and I have the real deal fogs, and a lot more).
