01-02 Sedan Fog Light: Cheap Ebay Alternative Idea

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/01-02...spagenameZWDVW

So i've been contemplating about the eBay alternative. So far, the problems with it is just the incorrect wiring harness and the switch etc.

So what i am thinking is this, i'm just going to get it, and wire it up in a way so that, it turns on when I turn on my headlights. Instead having a seperate switch which goes into the cabin, the lights will stay on as long as my headlights are on.

I did work like this a while back, but i can't remember which relay i need to use. I think i need one with 3 prongs, one for power, signal and ground. Any thoughts?

The harness is just short by a few feet. I connected longer wires to go into the cabin. The fog light switch was a little too big and the prongs that holds it in place is small and it wont fit. I made a frame from plastic and attached it between the switch and the button and trimmed down the button with a dremel. I spliced a wire to the cruise control light up wire so that the fogs only turn on when the parking lights are turned on. I made my own brackets out of metal pipe holders to hold the fog assembly in place. I can take pictures if you want.

These are the best shots I can get without taking off the bumper:








They hold pretty well and are sturdy enough to withstand trying to pry it out by hand.
