Fog Light Wiring Diagram

Can anyone get a fog light wiring diagram? I bought the kit from online, it also has a wiring harness and switch. But our cars are prewired from factory. So instead of running a new harness, we can use the factory harness. But the problem is we have to buy the switch that comes with the turn signal and headlight switch. That cost like 160 bucks. My kit only cost 70 bucks. All we have to do is find the wire that goes to the fog light relay and tap it with the headlight switch. That is what i am trying to figure out.
Thanks

Alrite guys i got it figured out already. Since the car is prewired, and i didnt want to buy the toyota switch because it cost 160 bucks.
1. All you have to do is pop open the steering column cover.
2. Disconnect Turn signal/headlight connector
3. Cut the Red and white wire and use a butt connector to connect the wires together. (The fog lights will turn on when the headlights are on only.)
4. You have to buy a Fog light relay from toyota 37 bucks, it is located behind the ash tray right behind the climate control. You plug it right in the empty spot on the right side on the top.
5. Start your car and turn on the headlights and the fog lights will turn on. AIM the fog lights and you are done.

It was pretty easy and a lot cheaper then buying all the parts from the dealer.

You can do two things with those wires, easy way you just connect them together, when you do that the fogs turn on automatically when the headlights doo at all times. Or you can connect those two wires to a switch, so you can manually turn them on and off when the headlights are on only.

you dont add a new harness, there is a factory harness already, only thing you add is a relay, and a switch if you want too, the red and white wire are the switch wires, when you connect them together and the headlights are on they will turn on, if they are unconnected the fogs will be off. so its easier just to leave them connected together and they will automatically turn on and off when the headlights are connected.

I've managed to find the red and white wire that you were talking about. But now i'm having a hard time looking for the empty spot for the relay. "it is located behind the ash tray right behind the climate control. You plug it right in the empty spot on the right side on the top." My car didn't come with the ash tray? Is it located behind the side mirror controls, i tooked out the panel but didnt find an empty spot.. I'm trying to figure out where "right behind climate control" is. I can find it

its below the radio, thats where the climate control is. above the ash tray where the cig lighter is. right behind the climate control there is a box with some relays on it, and on the top right side there is a blank spot to put the relay in.

Do you think a snap lock connector would work instead of cutting and joining the wires it would just clamp over them spike into them and bridge them together, and same continuity, will it matter? Just thinking it would be less effort to remove as well.


This is a great idea as it means your using all the stock wiring and relays and don't have to run many wires exept into the fogs and possibly the switch

How did you install the fog lamps in the bumper? There is a sort of protection plate under the bumper that make it difficult to access,should I screw down this plate?
