Default Fog Relay And Switch Question

Alright, my truck has all the wiring for the fog lights, i added some lights (not fogs but you get the point), got the fog 2wd bezel and the relays, (the f57b-149192-AA relays), and everything works, EXCEPT the switch only works as a momentary switch for some reason? Could the switch be broken or could i have bought a wrong relay?

The switch is probably broken. The switch itself is mechanically latching. It should push on and be in. Then push again and pop out. If it isn't latching in, then its broken.
