I am trying to add fog lamps to the front of my 97 sidekick. I want to run them thru a relay and have them go on and off with the low beam headlights. Can you tell me where I can pick up the power going to the low beams?  Thanks for any help you can give me!

that's what I tried to do but it looks like the wires are hot all the time. now I'm thinking that maybe the ground is switched to make/break the lighting circuits. any ideas? thanks.

Update: It is the ground ......and not the hot....that is switched to control the headlights. Once I figured that out, hooking up the fog lamps to work as desired was simple.
