Factory Fog Light wiring does NOT connect to the Ignition Switch
Power comes from the RED / BLACK wire of the Combination Switch (turn signal / light switch)
Factory also uses a Relay for the Fog Lights

Click Attachment Below
Otherwise here is the Ignition Switch wires
Constant 12 volts = WHITE/BLACK
Ignition 12 volts = BLACK/WHITE
Ignition #2 = RED/YELLOW
Accessory = WHITE/BLUE
