I have decided to install fog lights using the spare switch that I have in my switch panel, opened up the switch panel and I found that the spare one has a connector cable, but dont know which fuse control it from the fuse box, can you tell me which fuse number control it? and if possible to tell me how the wiring should me from the fog light?.. is it easy?

My 98 has that same connector I was wondering what it went to as well, I thought it might be factory wiring for fogs but I don't see any kinda connector under the fenders so I'm not sure hopefully someone who knows will post up so we will know

If I had to guess, I'd say Accessory 3 fuse. I could check tomorrow cus I have an 04 with KC Daylighters installed with the switch in that position (i bought it like this). I could cross check the owner's manual for 98 and 04 models and give you a better answer tomorrow.

My factory FOG light switch goes there. So my guess is there is a fuse in the glove box marked fog lights.

I connected fog lights to my 99. Same thing. Those connectors ARE NOT for fog lights. You will have to run your own cables

Fuse #3 behind the glove box for my 98. I recently added mine as it also did not come factory. As for the wiring..... All the wiring inside was there to include the two relays behind the glove box. The power wire for the fog lights is a light blue wire. On the left side of the engine compartment look at the wiring harness that has a plug break in it right by the cruis control module (or by the second battery tray) if you don't have CC. On my haress the blue wire went in but did not have the wire on the other side of the connector to feed the lights. I opened the back side of the harness where the wire was missing and took out the white plastic plug, then I used a wire with the correct size terminal from a headlight socket I bought at advance auto (like $4) I think. once that lead is in just check for power and then continue to reun a wire from there. Hope that helps.

funny, my factory fog light switch is on the headlights, spin the knob forward and the lights come on, pull the knob out and the fogs come on.

I'm not sure what year they changed? My 97 had the switch on the dash their talking about that ran the foglamps but my 03 has them on the headlamp stalk.

Well i was completely wrong about that. Turns out that isn't even where my light switch is located.
