If you are looking for an alternative switch for the new accessory you just bought or for your next modification on your
truck, a Toyota OEM Fog Light switch is a good solution. The switch is easy to wire up and fits conveniently in the factory dash knockouts on
most 4Runners, Tacomas and pickup trucks.
Toyota has 2 switches available, illuminated and non-illuminated. The illuminated switch, part number 00550-35976, has a round orange
light (older stock had a rectangular light) to indicate the "On" position. The part number for the non-illuminated switch is PT297-89013-sw. You can
get the switch at any Toyota dealer for around $9 - $12.
A snap to wire
Things to have handy:
Female wire terminals and/or electrical tape
Holding the switch with the indicator light at the top, you will see three prongs on the back of the switch. If you have the non-illuminated switch, looking
at the front, the middle prong should be on the right. Now all you need to do is pop out the opening in the dash, bring the wires through and connect the wires
to the correct prong as follows:
Top prong should be connected to the ground wire
Middle prong should be connected to the "hot" power wire
Bottom prong should be connected to the wire for the relay
Using the female wire terminals makes the job simple. Just crimp the wire on one end and slide it onto the prong. You can secure it with electrical tape.
When you are done wiring it up, just push it into the dash opening.
