Hi I would like to put aftermarket fog lights on my 2005 Nissan Altima. When I bought this car new I did not choose the option at that time. I know I would have to change the multifunction switch to one that has the fog mode option. First is the wiring at the old switch? How would one change the switch from one type to another?
