Default ABS Switch using the OEM foglight switch

I have an OEM switch. I was wondering if any one has gotten it to work as an ABS switch? If you did, can you tell/show me where the two wires attach to the switch?

Thanks.

wasn't the foglight switch a momentary sw? (i rarely use my foglights so forgot which of my cars had the momentary and which had the latching type).

you should get a latching switch if you're doing a ABS on/off switch.

OK, thanks for jamz for the help. Once you have it hooked up properly, it takes 3-4 seconds for the ABS light to go out. I didn't know this for a couple weeks and just thought it wasn't working.

ok, here we go...

for this switch you bought, does the back end of it look like this? (not sure what HTML will do to this but...)

ignore the periods there-

so if you have tabs that look like that, I'll number them, starting from upper left, in clockwise order,

1,2,
...3,
...4,
6,5

I found that you need to rig power to tab #2.
Then, you can hook ground to either tabs 4 or 5... doesn't seem to matter which. I used 5 just 'casue it was farther away and less likely to short out.
