Fog Light Switch & Connectors

Do they make a plate to delete the fog light switch, like the smaller plate next to it?

and what do the two connectors circled in RED that are behind the fog light switch go too? They are not the fog light connector because it is plugged in and the fog lights work fine.

I'm hooking my fog lights to come on with the low beams without the switch or maybe to turn on when the running lights are turned on.

You may want to check the TN laws because I think it is one of the states that will ticket you for driving with fog lights on if it is not foggy out. as a truckdriver I know its illegal for us to have them on if there is no fog

I think that is true (or should be) in many states. I especially dislike the large late model GM trucks/Suburbans/Tahoes and the like that always seem to have extra bright foglamps on when their headlights are on.

I had no idea this is, or could be, a law. I used to drive with my fogs on all the time in my old sable, and I still do sometimes... I'll have to check MA laws to confirm
