also the switch is back lit when the key is on...so you can see the switch on dash to turn on..then i wired a light on dash just below the switch that should light if the fog lights are on..and that ain't working eather

I have a wire diagram for the relay. Let me find it and I will send it to you.

For Relay
#30 Power from battery
#85 ground
#87 goes to fog lights (Switch Leg)
#86 goes to switch for lights or headlight switch (How ever you want them wired)

For Switch
Terminal #1 Switch Leg (wire this to #86)
Terminal #3 Ground
Terminal #2 12 volt constant power

Terminal #1 is the terminal that is furthest from the other two Hook up wire from #86 terminal on relay
Terminal #3 can be wire with #85 or any good ground.
Terminal #2 can be wired to any power source. That light should come on when you turn on your fog lights.

By hooking it up this way, the power goes thru the relay to lite up the lights. Terminal #86, when powered, closes the contact. When you remove power, the contact open, thus turning off lights. So for the switch when you turn on the switch, the 12 volts power from terminal #2 powers terminal #1 thus send power to #86. Now lights are on. You will need constant 12v power to the switch in order for this to work. Also, by doing it this way, you can turn on the fog lights without turning on your ignition.

Hope this helps.

ok i see, your switch is powering the relay?

i have my switch power to the relay, so when the key is on the relay is on, then the power rom the relay to the switch, so the switch is just a open or closed circuit breaker.

your switch may not be able to handle the power

now i'm really messed up....my relay gets power from bat to pin 30 on relay....87 on relay goes to + for front lights....85 on relay is grounded....then on my switch it is grounded....the hot feed for the switch is from a switch load...key....and # 2 leaving switch goes to 86 on relay...that should send 12 volts to 86 on relay when the rocker switch is depressed?...but i get nothing,,,now i think the relay and switch are blown?
