    as mhvcbv says, ciggy lighter feed or any feed that is on after the ign is turned on will suffice, as its basically a signal wire to the relay and wont carry alot of load. Re the diagram, you can if you choose to run two cables, one from terminal 87 and 87a to each fog individually.

    not sure if its there on your model chris, guess you will see when the bumper is off. Personally,i wouldn't cut the washer leads off but make up new little loom for the fogs,
