I did it on my car,you need to take the power wire from the fog light switch,and jump it to the purple wire under the center console.The purple wire will have power with the key "on",that needs to now feed power to the fog light switch,the ground will stay the same on the switch.Thats it.This way the fog lights will come on anytime the key is in the "on" position.

So you don't want to do the regular re-wire? I used the power wire from the vert harnerss and wired it to the switch, that way I used the switch to power on/off anytime even without any lights on.

i'm sorry, i don't really understand how you guys are wiring this up. when it comes to wiring things, i get lost easily.

All cars come equiped with a convertible wire harness. If you take out the storage compartment fromt he console you will see another wire harness that looks the same like the one plugged into your fog light switch.
Check out the mod articles in this forum, they have very good intructions and pics.
or also check out www.sn95.com they have good articles also.

Just unplug the power from the convert switch and use it to power the fog lights. This wire only carries power when the key is in the on position, not all the time so you don't have to worry about leaving the fog lights on.

Ed hit it on the nose...the purple wire in the console is for the convert roof motor.Use the link he has posted,its a pretty easy thing to do.
