Odds are the wiring harness does not go all the way to the bumper or it is not complete(i.e. doesn't have a relay in the fuse block under the hood etc.) Make sure all thats there and you can usually find a factory switch in the classifieds on here or on ebay. Can always go to the stealership too.

You have the wires to the bumper and dist box under the hood.

You are gonna be missing the wires from the factory switch to the dist box. So you need to get a switch and then figure out what wires hook to what and run them to the relay.

The fog light switch on your 08 is part of the headlight switch. To turn on the fog lights u just pull out on the dial.

I hate that universal headlight-fog light type switch. I'm glad ford had the fog light switch seperate from the headlight switch before 2008
