That would be perfect. The OEM switch has the rear fog switch as a spring-loaded function. You turn it to the rear fog position and it springs back to the front fog position. I presume that this sets it up such that the rear fog runs only until the car is shut off and requires you to toggle it again once you restart the car if you want it on again. It keeps us from looking like idiots driving around with our rear fog lamps on all the time.

That said, the switch may require a specific relay to mimic that function, as it cannot simply be set to "on".
