    guys, just got the new fog light kit and no instructions was inside. PRIUS C 2014
    I think it is already pre-wired in my car but the plug under the steering wheel has only one row of wires then the method of connecting two wires in second row for activating fog lights is not applicable.
    can anyone explain (with the photos pls) how to connect them using button.
    want to get the possibility of using fog lights with DRLs or with the low beams.

    Did the kit contain the lamps and the control stalk, or just the lamps?

    I haven't done a fog kit on one of these, but for many cars you install the lamps outside, then you replace the turn signal stalk with a new one that has the extra switch on it. Everything's wired, just need the switch and lamps.

    no, I'm not going to replace the turn signal stalk. Just turn it on and off with additional button(included in kit) after the зфклштп lights (or DRL) are on.
    but two wires going to turn signal stalk are missing. that's the problem. which wire of button connects to which wire of the car?

    It's a bit of a complicated question. Gives this thread a read. c foglights | Page 14 | PriusChat

    When I installed my fog light kit, all I needed to do was choose a blank spot for the button (I chose next to the EV and ECO button). Fuse tap it into the fusebox by the pedals, ground it, and that's it... Of course I had to run the wires from the engine bay, through the wheel well and into the car.

    seems like you used harness included into the kit, avoiding factory wires. but I want to add the button to the factory harness.

    my button's scheme differs from yours. therefore I'm trying to install as it is. wires coming from the button are
    RED-BLUE-RED-BLACK
    As i understood - first red wire is taking small current (second red is for button's light) and after button is "pressed on" this small current, coming from red wire, goes through the button by blue wire to relay. black may be connected to car body.
    If I'm right then which PIN is needed for red wire and which is for BLUE?
