As I recall, you have to turn the headlight switch to full on (all the way to the right) in order to pull on the fog light switch. It won't pull out when set on "auto".

Looks great but yes, very pricey. How about an Antigravity battery? Currently sold out, but that's the one I'd get if I were to go that route. You'll probably want their custom mount, too.
