Question OEM Fog Light Install Help for MY04 STi

So I bought some OEM WRX fog lights from a fellow NASIOC member and I have some questions on the install. So far I installed the fogs and connected the already existing wire harnesses behind my STi covers. Next I took the switch and plugged it into a wire harness next to my intercooler spayer harness. I assumed this was the pre-wired harness for the fogs since it was just sitting behind the dash and fits perfect. When I push the button, the light on the button comes on but the fog lights don't come on.
Did I miss something, ie relay, wrong wiring ??

Thanks guys!!
Justin

You will also require the relay. The switch is getting power (evident by the green light on the button), but all the switch does is trigger a relay to turn on the fogs. No relay, no fogs.

...and, as almost all of us know, the light on the switch will not come on unless the headlights are turned on.....

I figured I needed a relay. So can I get this relay at any autoparts store ie Advanace, NAPA?? Where do I plug in the relay??

I don't have a local dealer. It's sucks when its time to fix something but good because I'm the only STi around here!!
Does the relay install under the dash or engine bay?

Two Qs:
1) Will any Subaru Relay same size/capicity work? (ie 02 Fog light relay)
2) Which relay spot under the dash is it? I see 5 relay connect with 3 out of the 5 filled.
Thanks

^^ Thats the switch, not the relay.

The relay is a small black square and has I believe 5 flat pins coming out of it. You need a Subaru Relay, I don't know what part #. I would call subaru find out the part # and then order it here: https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/oe_parts_cat.html

The relay is to the right of the switch in the picture, you have to scroll the window to the right to see it =D.

In MY06 WRX, the front foglight relay is the 3rd one from the bottom, and there are 6 total relay slots (top two are blank in the sedan). You can probably figure out which one by locating a green/red, red/blue, white/black & black/white wires behind it.
