First off you need to gather some parts
1. Directed 611T relay
2. Fog lights (duh)
3. Fog light mounting panel GM# 15223620
4. Fog light switch GM# 15239077
5. Misc electrical supplies/tools
6. Connector for fog light switch
7. Wires with metripack connectors got mine from a spare headlight harness
8. Headlight harness for vehicle with fogs (got mine from the junkyard)




The switch has four wires marked A, B, C, D I dont remember the colors of the wires but I will check and update this post.

A. Ground
B. Cluster Light Power
C. Fog lamp relay Power - Yellow
D. Fog lamp switch signal - Orange

The Directed Relay Has 5 Wires and 4 dip switches You need 2 and 4 on (1 and 3 off).

For this install we will adding wires to the fuse box connectors in unused ports. These connectors are C3 and C2 in the field service manual. C3 is the headlight harness connector it is Grey with a green cover C2 is the body side harness it is Black and i dont remember the cover color. To install wires into these connectors you have to first remove the green retainers I just pryed on them with a small screwdriver



Red wire from the directed unit is power we will connect this to port A1 on connector C3 (this is ign+ bus and will be hot when the ign is in run position)

Black wire from the directed unit is power. We will connect this to port E12 on C3 (this is the ground bus)

Green wire on the directed unit goes to terminal D on the switch which is the oarnge wire

Brown wire on the directed unit will go to A4 on connector C3 which is the high beam signal. This will cause the lights to turn off with the high beams. Alternativly you could connect the brown and red wires together and connect them both to A1 so your fogs will stay on with the high beams.

Yellow will go to E10 on connector C2 (this is the fog relay supply port) And Terminal C on the switch also yellow.

The remaining two wires on the switch are ground Terminal A. I connected mine behind the cubby that the fog switch goes in using a ring terminal there is a bolt all the way in the back.

And instrument panel lights Terminal B. If you remove the black plastic cover off the top of the steering wheel you will find a long blue connector Terminal F has a gray wire. I used a quick tap to connect the wire for terminal B to the gray wire




Thats it put a relay into the fog lamp circuit on the fuse box and a 10 amp fuse in the fog light fuse location.

long shot being how old this is and no one comes on forums anymore, but did you have any issues blowing ignition switch fuses with this install? I have everything in the correct pin slots from the junction block, the factory fog light harness and switch is installed and im using the 611t. I have double checked all my wires and keep popping that ignition switch fuse in the car fuse panel. I appreciate any help!

plug and play would be extremely time consuming and expensive. you would need a new IP harness, BCM, front engine bay harness and all the hardware. basically take apart your entire car.

Or ya could hard wire power and switch it and just instal a switch inside and just remember to shut them off.

It sound like he wants a factory install like I do. I already have the majority of the factory stuff installed so I'm just going to run my own relays. I think there is something not hooking up right with the 611T that the OP is using.
