pull **** to half stop and turn on fog light switch??. Note: If you have DRLs (probably don't in a 93) they will stay on. They are easily disabled.

That is a MUCH more logical place for the fog switch than in my 96 SSE. Its up on the map light unit. Idiotic. Useless fact: That'* the exact same fog switch that was in my 95 Grand Prix "Special" Edition.

Is it easy to move the wiring? My guess is "no". I have the mechanical skills of a field mouse.

yup 5 wires.....

two from the existing fog light switch
two get grounded
one gets tapped into the headlight switch for the dimmer

O.K. my wife has the SSE out or I would go look. Where on earth does the wiring from that switch in the map light unit come down? Does it run all the way to the back or through the front pillars?

the skinny is.....the wires run UP the a pillar, and then go into a 5 pin connector....i removed the 2 wires (Brown and Yellow) from that connector and then removed them from the tape on the A pillar and let them hang at the bottom on the A pillar..... At the bottom of the A pillar i ran the wires into the dash under the headlight switch where the switch is...made my connection to the fog light switch via another connector

the black and the Green wires from the fog light switch both get grounded

and the grey wire on the fog light switch goes to the grey wire on the head light switch for interior dimming

Well, now how sweet is this??? Had I known this, I would have done it along time ago.

The foglight switch was the only thing worth keeping on the GP and here I went and sold it with the car!
