CJ7/8 Stock Fog/Driving Light Hook Up - Not Working

I have a stock set of these and I have good grounds as well.

The set (lights) works, I tested them on the battery before I mounted the bumper.

Black=ground

Red=hot

The red wire hooked to the red pig-tail on the drivers side harness (factory connection) behind the headlight.

I did test the red feed wire w/a test light (it works/tested it on battery) w/the new headlight switch to full on (like if you were driving at night) and the test light did not work.

I did look for a fuse but couldn't find anything noting a driving light or ... All fuses are good, but maybe I'm missing something.

Are the lights hook up correctly (I've never had a factory install for this set up) and does anyone have any info on this factory set up.

Thanks,
Jim

If you want it stock? Do you have the correct dash switch and the harness that goes with it? it has a relay and ties into the headlight switch and only powers the fog lights on low beam.

That's correct, the factory fog light switch/relay plugs into the wiring harness just below the head light switch.

Stock would be nice. Nope, I don't have a switch, thought it was just in the circuit.

OK, the stock set up was big $$ from a PO.

So, I bought a switch/fuse/wire.

The lights are plugged in behind the grill (red lead) and grounded.

Question, is there a way to pick up the HOT lead to the lights under the dash so I can make them work?

I don't know which wire to look for, anyone have a pic?

Thanks,
Jim

If all else fails, I can run a HOT wire to the harness on the finder and splice it there.

The switch assembly (switch, relay, plug) plugs directly into the factory harness just behind the head light switch. If you look under the dash in that general area you should see the flat 4 wire plug hanging there. It sounds like you have the other end hooked up correctly. If you still can't find it I will take a picture of mine under the dash.
