Can you please elaborate how did you wire up the lights to the dash board. I managed to remove the bumper and I can see those factory installed wires to connect to. Where those wires appear in the cabin, where did you install a switch on the dashboard, does it require mounting off the dashboard, did you need to add any fuses or relays along the path?
I have 2002 Escape.

Just to the left of the power mirror switch, there is a "blank" square insert, same size as the hazzard light and rear window defroster button. It is a blank, or "dummy" cover just to fill the space. Get a small flathead screwdriver and pop it out. Attached to the inside of that "blank" will be the plug that goes right into the actual switch that you need to buy, either from a dealer or scrap yard, just plug in and push it back in. You next need to goto your local dealer and get the computer programmed to enable the lights. The light icon will apear as soon as you plug it in, but dont be happy, they wont work til they get programmed.
Keep in mind, this is how it is on my 2006.....
Hope this helped.....

Does anyone know if the fog lamp bulb P/N PS24WFF translates to a standard P/N such as H4 or 9145?
Looking to replace the OEM bulbs with something such as Silverstar's.

Hi, I have a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and it looks like you have/had the same fog lights I do (PS24WFF) and you either found a bright bulb or found a way to install HID's from the looks of the pictures on your domain. If they are HID's, which bulb pattern did you use. Thanks.

PS24WFF is H16 or 9009.
H16 is a special bulb made for GM trucks and SUV. But since 2008 Ford use it on his truck and the Escape was the first.
You can buy it from www.putco.com or make a search on yahoo or google.

I have a 2008 FEH with factory fog lights, and it uses a different switch than the ones described for the 2006 in this forum. My fog lights activate by the same rotating switch that works the headlights - you pull the switch out to turn on the fog lights.
I'm not sure if the stock switch has this capability, or if you can use a different switch, or if you would have to insert a new switch that is capable of fog light operations. But in any case it appears that the Ford dealer will need to program the SJB.

I purchased a Fog light switch after seeing the wires when replacing the headlight lens. So now I want to install them myself, so what is the final solution to getting them to work?

Saying you will not buy another Ford because the NOT factory installed lights will not work after you add them yourself is the dumbest thing I have heard all day. But it is still early. You should have done your homework. Take some personal responsibility. Lick your wounds and move on. Get the fog lights "programmed in" and then appreciate the job you have done.
