fog light wiring diagram for 2006 chevy silverado

Wiring's are below, first read
What others say on fog lights installation:----

I went through all of the posts regarding "Fog Light" installs on these vehicles but, I just wanted to double check that if I add a Set of lights to my truck that it won't trip anything?

I've always wired Fogs on my truck separately. Just pick a switched 12V source and used a relay and I've always had success. With all of the friggin computers on board my truck I wanted to make sure it didn't effect anything.

I bought the factory install kit and after reading the directions that came with it I thought; Hey why use the factory setting, pay the Dealer $46 (Can) to program my BCM and monkey with the Electrical center and everything else. Only to have the lousy fog light switch and only to have them come on with my low beams. If I wire them seperately I can have them on anytime.
-------------

I did the same as you. Bought the stock lights to keep a clean look, then wired a Hella switch with a stock looking amber LED. Hooked the input on the relay to turn the lights on with the parking lights. Works great and looks stock.

-----------
I bought the stock kit for just under 100 bucks off gmpartsdirect.com. You have to either wire in your own switch, or have the dealership program the BCM to work the stock switch. I would guess they would charge you 75-150 for the install, plus another 150 for the part to have it all done by them. I bought my stock lights online, then hooked up a small Hella rocker switch with an amber LED that looks like a stock switch. Good luck.
----------
Update:

Well I just finished installing my stock lights that I bought from the dealer. $140 Canadian. Bought a nice $3 switch from Radioshack and had a relay kicking around the shop. Got it all wired in and I must say I am pretty happy with the final product. Installed my Radioshack S/W and found an Ignition activated lead in the Fuse panel by the door and it all works perfectly. Didn't bother with an LED indicator as I figure I'll know if I have them on or off.

The nice part about this, is that I saved $50 from having the dealer program the BCM and I can have them on with the High and Low Beams. If you buy the stock kit you don't have to be a wizz kid to install it. It's really straight forward. The only tricky part is finding a hole to go through the firewall.
