I recently recieved 3 factory jeep switches, Fog, rear defroster, and over drive....I have an 01 wrangler and want to use these switches for other purposes and was wondering if anyone else has done the same and could help me wire mine up. Behind each switch the connectors are labled, 1,2,3,4 and I need to know which wire goes to which ..such as power, ground exc... thanks for the help

If you have a VOM (Volt Ohm Meter) you can find out witch connection does what simply by putting the probes on the contact tabs and turning the switch on and off.
Most times the switched tabs will be one on top of the other, when the switch is turned on, power goes to the tab directly above or below it. It also really doesn't matter witch side the power goes to make it switchable.

The other two tabs will be for the light inside the switch, one power, one ground. Put power to one tab and ground the other if the light comes on fine, if not reverse them and you should be good. You can "pig tail" off the power wire to power the light.
