Did you attach one of the fog light wires to a good chassis ground and one to the purple wire?

For the fog lights, the factory leads were hanging under the hood on both sides. I cut the factory leads and wired direct both wires. IN the previous pic, I do not know what the purple wire is with the connector. It was wired in the bundle that the end of the red wire from the relay was in.

Do you think that wire could be a ground wire?

I must be getting old or my memory is not as good as it used to be. Ignore my last post. Just looked again, the factory fog light harness under the hood is white and blue. Not sure what the purple wire you have is for under the dash, I don't have one. The only purple wires I could find went to the radio for speakers. Connecting the large gauge red wire to +12 was all I had to do to make it work.

I wish mine were that easy. So far, I have:

1. Connected the red power lead to the battery which gave me power to the switch inside (light on the switch)
2. Connected the for light to the existing fog light leads under the hood.
3. Tested the red power lead to the battery to confirm 14.4V
4. Tested the factory fog light leads reading 144.3V (doesn't make sense, which makes me think there is no power to the leads)?

I expect to have some time later today to do some voltage checks at the switch and relay, will let you know what you should have at each wire.

Success!!

Pushed the purple wire with the connector through the firewall and found a similar connector tucked into a group of wires taped together. plugged in and it started to work. This must be supplying power from the switch to the lights.

Now just have to find a way to cut a round hole through the bumper cover.

Was planning to use JB Weld to secure the bracket to the fiberglass bumper cover.

So I was able to get power to the switch and the lights. I was able to route the wires through the engine and get them tied off to the battery. I started to cut a 4" hole in the bumper cover. not going to be easy with hard fiberglass.

I think I will have to contact a local body shop to see if they can cut the hole.

Thanks for everyone's help!

My 2006 Georgetown M303 has the harness but no switch. Does anybody know where I can buy a correct switch?
