Fog Light Wiring

MY truck is an 05 ST, but I have switched to a color match bumper and put in the foglights. I know I have to get the connectors at the foglight end and I've already gotten the OEM switch with the foglight control. My question is will the existing harness have the wiring in it for the foglights or am I going to have to run separate wiring?

to use the factory switch, i think you would have to hook them into the harness. that means they will cut off when you turn your high beams on. if you hook them up with a stand-alone harness, you can make them completely independent, or do like we do at the shop, and tie them into the parking lights. then they will work with all and they will cut off when you turn your lights off.

i know on the 97 and 02 of mine, all i gotta do is get the right switch (for fog light control) then get the wiring that goes from the factory harness to the foglight. then install a fuse and i'd be good to go... i'm actually workin on this now on the 02.

your truck should have the prewiring for the fog lights... but the connectors are prolly hidden

dont want to nit pick but kris your diagram wont work. theres no power wire for the switch to "flip" the relay(its grounded on both sides). and i recommend using a switched hot wire, not directly to battery. just sayn to make it easier for someone who knows nothing.

Thanks for all the info everyone. I think I'll look to see if it's there but just tucked away.
