Does anyone know the pin layout on the vauxhall rear fog light switch?

Just bought another one for my front foglights, i've actually got sidelights in my fog light cases so I dont need a fog light wiring kit with a relay!! I just have one wire which needs to be connected to a live but i'm wanting to use this switch.

Cheers for any help

cool... so if i basically spike into 1,3,4,5 of my existing rear fog light switch and link them onto my new fog light switch.

Then I simply connect terminal 2 to my fog lights (live) and hey presto?

ur correct! Just make sure u use good solered and insulate connections. In fact, use the proper vauxhall "pod" for the switch to slide into (save soldering on each pin individually.

or just buy the spade connectors that fit over the pins. I did that.

Wired it all up and it works a treat

However the fog light switch does get quite hot.. is this normal?

Also I'm just wondering if the wire i've used is capable of running the 2 sidelights leds safely. I wouldn't of thought the 2 sidelights draw much current?
