Splicing Hella Black Magic Lights to factory harness?

Is there a way to splice my aftermarket fogs to the existing harness? I have a multifunction switch that I use to turn my fogs on now and I would like to keep it that way. Has anyone else done this?

You need to know how many amps your new lights will draw. This will determine if its something as simple as splicing the positive and ground connections or if you will need to put a relay in between.

I believe the factory fog lights are rated at 15 amps. Provided your new lights do not draw a total of more than 15 amps, you should be able to splice the wires into the existing leads.
