Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar

1st time install of OEM fog lights into a 1999 Mercury Cougar?

Is there a relay switch for fog lights for a 1999 Mercury Cougar? I installed o.e.m. fog lights into my car, which originally did not have fog lights, and I have an o.e.m. light switch (used), which has the fog light switch built into it; as far as I can see thus far, all of these things have been connected together in the proper manner(s). However, though both of these are installed, when I pull the switch to its "out" position, to turn on the fog lights, the fog lights do not turn on. The H3 fog light bulbs are new, so I don't think there is a problem with the bulbs. Also, since no indicator light for the fog lights came on in the instrument panel, I wonder if there is some wiring that I do not have, which goes from the rear of the light/fog light switch to a relay (or to a fuse), which my car did not come with since my car did not (as far as I know,...I bought it used) originally come with fog lights. Is there something else that I have to install or to connect in order to get these o.e.m. fog lights to work in my 1999 Mercury Cougar, which, in my best understanding, did not come with fog lights when it was originally made?

Look under the dash near where the headlamp switch mounts and if yours is equipped you should see I think it is a blue 4 pin connector with the following wire colors OG,OG/WH,OG/GN,BK.
This is for the fog lamp relay.If yours has this connector then you will need to purchase a relay ford part number F6RZ-14N089-AA should list for about $10.

It's definitely the switch...I bought two of 'em so far...known bug. I don't use the fog lights as much anymore , but the "Airtex" oem equivalent switch from Rockauto seems to be holding up well. If you dissamble your broke switch you'll probably see evidence that it is beginning to melt and theres alot, maybe too much, grease, which may or may not have been the cause of the bad, heating contacts inside switch.
If I remember right, even though the foglights have a relay there is still full amperage going through the switch or something....don't qoute me on that last statement.
