Default ABS on/off using factory fog switch


Ive done some searching and tried sending some PMs (no replies) but still have some questions. I have an extra fog light switch from an 02 Impreza. The pinout looks like this:


Heres the links I found.

I had a switch with an LED, located on the center console that stayed lit when ABS was engaged. It had the two pins for the contacts and a ground for the LED. When power went through the switch it kept the LED on, even without the car on.

I want a cleaner look. I would like to use the fog light switch in the same manner however, Id like the LED to turn off when I turn the car off. I wasnt sure if the factory fog light switch is latching and is there a way I can wire it so the LED turns off with ignition without using relays?

So heres what Id like to do, Im asking for help on whether this is possible and what I need to make it happen:

1. Turn ABS on and off from switch
2. When ABS is engaged the LED lights up on the switch
3. When I turn the car off the LED turns off
4. When I turn the car back on the ABS is still either on or off, same as
before the car was turned off, and the light turns on if engaged.

Also, I tried Acetone to eat away the white decal for the fog light and it didnt work. Is there a protective cover over the decal? How can I get rid of that without using a sharpie and coloring it?

If anyone knows what Im talking about could you please tell me what pins I should hook up to where?
