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".
This is not a problem, you can be lazy and use a PAC TR-7 and latch the output digitally, or you can make a latching relay setup with a 5 connector SPDT relay. Come on... easy easy easy....
