Question Where the heck is the fog light harness?

ok guys. this has been puzzling me for some time now. I have fog light housings on my truck, but with no bulbs or harness. I have a fog light headlamp switch in the dash. I have searched for the harness but cannot find one. I just took the bumper off today and all I can find is a connector on the left (driver) side under the parking lamp that plugs into a "dead" connector. It doesn't look like an ABS sensor. is that the plug for a fog lamp harness? From the looks of things it comes out of the same harness that feeds the parking lamps on the driver side...

here is a picture of the connector in question.

I just bought a set of fog lights for my truck. I called my hook up at the dealer today and he told me that the stupid harness was $140 I told him no thanks......

That connector,on mine is plugged into the temperature sending unit.The outside temp for the overhead console.
My wiring for my foglights is located on the inner part of the frame rail.I will try to get a pic.

I was about to say I had no idea what that plug was for because I could not trace it back nor get any type of power from it...

now I know.

I'm guessing that all fords have a light switch that you can pull out even without fogs. I took my switch apart and there is no way that it could power fog lights. There is nothing that actuates when you pull out on the knob...... I did find however the wire in the harness at the switch that I presume is for fogs... So all I need to do is find the correct harness and get a switch and I'll be golden..

Oh and I know now how you can modify the switch to use the fog lights without having to piggy back the harness.

All you have to do is use a relay.Pick up the signal from the park-lights,low or high beam(whichever you prefer)and have it wired up so that it triggers the relay,then the power on the relay itself will juice up the fogs.

yeah but you still have to chop up the wiring... I don't prefer to do things that way, but will if I have to...

I forgot to tell everyone that I called my hookup at Ford and he said that the factory fog light harness was $104 and had to be ordered from the manufacturer There's no way that I'll pay that much for some wiring. I went to the junkyard the other day and of course, the 3 trucks that they had that had foglights, had the wiring missing
