fog light hook up engine side?, otheriwse finished

after scouring the threads looking for a shot of where the fogs hookup on the engine side it seems as if its all dead pics n dead links

ive ordered and recieved a fog stalk, ive had fog lights on the cheep console switch since dec, with my own harness and a wire thru the firewall IE the no dash indication method

now that ive got the stalk its time to do it OE IE with dash indication(canadian car with factory tach i see the spot that should light)...stalks in, relay is in...but im at a loss of the exact connection point on the engine side fuse box, i assume its one of the most forward white connections as both of those go down into the front bumper area......but ive got no clue which one and where on them

i really need to verify this stalk is still good before my ebay return window closes

Come to Canada, there is at least one 2nd gen in pretty much every U-pull I've been in. 3rd gens aren't really old enough to start showing up in U-pulls yet unless its been in a wreck.

did a bunch of testing yesterday

2 things

#1 with the stalk, you have to add a ground wire to the far right "tiny" hole on the column plug
#2 the engine side fuse box "feed" wire holes are the left front side plug top right side holes...the one with just a bunch of green wires in it

done..everything works as intended ....now i need to track down power windows

Attached is a PDF that I saved when I was installing my fog lights.

I ended up splicing two OEM terminals (PN: 82998-12340) to my fog light wiring kit for compatibility with the engine side wire harness. I got them from here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/193350436215

the only addition i see needed for said PDF is that atleast for an 07, you need to add a ground wire to the stalk harness on the far right top 2 slot area the tiny pin...the single all by itself over there, the other 2 on the other end on the top are also for the fog, they give feedback to the ecu, the ground is required to actualy get the fogs to fire

I didn't create the PDF, and it's been over two years since I did my fog light install. I ended up finding the PDF via the wayback machine (https://archive.org/web/).

BTW, if you are stuck on a problem like this. Use the wayback machine to see if the webpages with potential information have archived copies. I have found a lot of useful "lost" information (i.e. pictures, pdfs, attachments, etc.) that way. This site and microimageonline.com are good places for finding old info.

bonus note
i managed to get an un-modified console switch to trigger the dash indicator by plugging the power side of the switch into the left bottom side of the relay plug and stuffing the relay in over top of it

i was doing a bunch of troubleshooting trying to figure it all out as i thought i had a bad stalk(missing that ground wire)...it was my understanding that this was bassicly impossible without a modded switch and wiring it thru a complicated setup

Happy to somewhat help. Good luck with the modification. I'm very glad that I installed the fog lights with an OEM look!

ditto, i just managed to get the bonus of having the stalk AND the console switch to both work, kinda nice having the console "populated" with OE switches...even if the fog switch is a dealer addon switch

Good to hear, I'm going the OEM stalk method. Well, semi-OEM. I ordered the stalk off of autozone. It's the Duralast SW8100. Hopefully it works. I've been reading up on this and trying to find any post dealing with fog light installation. So far I have a consolidated file on my desktop with all of the resource material that I have been able to find. I'll let you know when I get started, it may have to be a weekend since my Yaris is my daily driver.

When you say "column plug" are you talking about the column wiring harness? Also where did you ground to, I haven't looked under the dash yet to find a good spot, I figured I would you first.
