Adding fog lights in a car that didn't come with them

I am trying to add fog lights to my car because it did not come with factory ones. I have already gone to the junkyard and picked up a headlight switch with the fog light switch in it. And I also grabbed the wiring harness cause I thought there would be more wiring than mine, but mine has the same amount, so I am assuming they used a universal harness. (like the svt amp/sub plug in the back of all hatchbacks) But my problem is that I can't find the plugs for them. Does anyone know where these might be tied up or hidden?

a lot of our cars came witht the wiring alraedy there but just no fogs installed. You check to see if you have your fog light harness already there? maybe taped away?

Thats what I was thinking, but I can't find them. I guess I need to follow the wiring on a car that has them and then do the same on mine.

I am not looking for the lights, I am looking for the plugs on my car.

check your wiring again down where the fogs go, i bet you just didn't see them the 1st time... that's what i thought too, all i have to do is get the switch and the fog assemblies and they just plug right in.

Did you get this to work? I bought the Ford kit and thought I could take a shortcut and not install all the wiring, since my car had the foglight plugs from the factory. Installed the new switch, plugged in the fogs, and nothing

Here is a picture of my car's harness (the car did not come with fogs, but had this harness behind the grille).

no, i haven't got the fogs yet lol... so i haven't tried it yet. did you look to see if there is a fuse that needs to be put in the fuse box. i would think that if you didn't have fogs there wouldn't be a fuse and may be a relay also needs to be popped in. since there's a harness there you just need to figure out what ford didn't put in...


does anyone know where the fog light fuse is? it may help to compare the fuse boxes...
