Mine was just taped up directly above where the switch goes in. It has a plug on it that fits the switch, so there's no mistaking what you're looking for.

Question. If you leave the switch pushed in, will your fog lights come on the next time you start the car? Or does it reset to being off each time?

If you use the factory wiring, the fog lights come on when you turn on the head lights. If the high beams are used, the fog lights go out and come back on when the low beams are again used.
Maybe that helps understand their operation as they are designed.

Gotcha. I was thinking of hooking my Driving lights up to that wiring, but I want them on all the time, so I will just stick with what I've got. Thanks.

Default Fogs?

Since this thread is on fogs, I have an 012 and can't figure out why my fogs don't work. I checked and changed fuse under dash still nothing. Is there any other fuse to check? I've checked bulbs they are good.could the switch be bad? They are factory and use to work driving me crazy. Any thoughts or advise appreciated.

There are probably only two wires going to the switch under the dash. Can you pull the plug off of the switch and jump them with a wire? If the lights come on then the problem is the switch. Of course, your headlights have to be on and set to low beams.

I assume you check that the bulbs are both good.

If you're still under warranty take it to the dealer.

If it's a factory fog light switch there are 4 wires going to the switch. I wish I knew what each wire does...

Maybe the foglight relay is bad? When you turn on/off the foglight switch do you hear the relay clicking?
