Where is backup light switch on 01 impala

Backup Lamps
The B/U LAMP fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the switch terminal of the backup lamps relay. The DIC/RKE fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the backup lamps relay coil terminal. When you place the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the powertrain control module (PCM) sends a class 2 message to the body control module (BCM). When these conditions occur, the BCM energizes the reverse lamp relay control circuit, closing the switch contacts, the current flows from the reverse lamp relay switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G302.

There is alot involved in turn on the back up lights .

I want to install aux. backup lights and not wiring them to the jeeps backup ligts. I don't understand the switch. It has three prongs on the back The diagram shows one is power coming from the relay one...

What diagram? What switch? Are you using a switch that salready in the Jeep, or a switch that you bought? You really need a relay to handle th ecurrent of the lights. The relay will have 4 terminals, The relay is really just a remote switch. Let the relay take the power, not the switch. Buy a relay for fog lights and it should have a diagram you can use.
