My 99 coug did not come with fog lights but it still has the wiring harness in the front, does this mean when i install fog lights they will come on when i turn the head lights on, or must i install the switch to? If there is a switch where is installed from the factory? Thanks for your help.

I was wondering if this had been resolved. I had the same question (and actually made a post too) so I wanted to know if anyone had figured it out. I had the idea of buying some new fogs, connecting them to the wire that comes already with a plug on it, replace the headlight switch for one that has the pull-out for the fogs, and install a relay. Any updates?

you could always just hook them up to another switch and save yourself the money that a new switch is going to cost you from Ford. Chances are it's probably $2000. Thank you Ford for making everything come in one package so you're left with a whole mess of crap you don't have any use for. You can hook up a switch to be hidden even if you want to.

I am also trying to wire up my fogs... would this be an option... just tap into the headlight wires so the fogs turn on with the headlights?

do you plan on installing the factory fog lights? . . . as far as the switch my brother bought a wireless kit for his fogs . . . come with a key chain remote and one to mount somewhere . . . you dont have to deal with running wires anywhere . . . just tapping into the wires to the fogs
