Couldn't find any information so ended with an add a circuit (micro size fuse) to the illumination (ILLUM) fuse. Works great, no piercing of factory wires.

If anyone is adding an Outback Fog switch to activate lights

The outback wiring harness color codes are

- Black = Ground
- White = Hot from ignition
- Blue = To activate relay for auxiliary LED (#86 on Relay)
- Red = I spliced with white wire since Ascent has always on switch backlight. If you want the backlight to be on when the switch is on, splice into blue wire.

I spliced the red into the green (illumination) wire from the adjacent Lift gate memory switch.... just sayin' :tango_face_wink:
