Led Fog light install?

Purchased a plug and play harness and two led fog lights. The harness has 3 wires which goes to a switch as well as a relay and a fuse. Now I want it to work on the factory fog light switch. How should I go about this.

The switch wire spliced into factory fog light wire or low beams if you didn't have factory lights.

I did some research and if I just splice the power wires from the fogs to the LED lights they might cause flicker. That I don't want, is there a connection somewhere in the stock fog light harness that I can tap into using the switch wires from the switch provided in the harness. (Black, Bllue, White).

It will work people just reported theycan cause flickering when the fog light switch is off and power is still ran to the vehicle. Maybe it was certain vehicle that does this.
