    The wiring isn;t always there so first check you have both pins in the fuse box where the front fog light fuse goes (this will confirm if you have the internal wiring) then check outside to see if there's 2 blue 2 pin connectors near the fog lights

    If you have the inside but nit the outside you can still do this, no inside though and it's pretty much a non starter

    Gsi fog lights use different connectors too so you might want to get the adaptor looms from vauxhall

    If you have no wiring inside you can't use the factory switch easily because it only makes contact as you push it
