Fog lights no switch?

So my truck has the fog lights in the bumper, they seem to be wired up but I have no way of turning them on. I was thinking that maybe the switch had been swapped, but I also have the button to adjust the mirrors and it does nothing also..But hey at least my transmission is fixed for now and is working great.

If the fog lights came originally on the truck, then you should just be able to pull out on the headlight switch when the headlights are turned on. That is how OEM fog lights turn on. If they are aftermarket, the switch could be anywhere...

Should there be a little symbol indicating fog light on the switch? Every other vehicle I've had there was a symbol. They look like OEM, look like all the others I've seen on Fords.

Yes, it will light up orange when the fog lights are on. It is just to the right of the actual knob.

my knob pulls out and the truck does not have fog lights. i would crawl under the dash and look for wires or a switch.
or just follow the wiring from the bumper and see.

This is true. However, you can modify the switch to let the fog lights stay on with high beams activated.

Well looks like I need to find the correct switch. Got a guy local parting out an Excursion going to see if he still has the switch.
