about the fogs: check the switch, it may be sticking, check the relay, it more likely is sticking.
If those two don't solve the problem, then there may be a wire that has been rubbed bare and is jumping to something that is providing the lamps with current.

replacing the relay is easier than replacing the cabin switch. You must remove the entire vent cluster on the left including the headlight switch - it's all one unit and requires removal before you can separate the switches from the cluster. There's a screw that holds the cluster in, you just unscrew it from the front and get some leverage on that thing somehow and it pops out.

The relay for the foglights, to my knowledge, is in the fusebox under the hood and just pops out and is just a direct replacement.

here's some pictures of mine, I added a extra really loud horn and added a button underneith the foglight switch that triggers a relay on the passenger side of my engine bay - same concept of what's going on with the foglight switch.

its not very hard to get the switch out, there is just one screw holding that vent in from underneath.

mine sometimes sticks, if you can somehow open it up without breaking it (i tried and failed) and clean the contacts, that would probably fix it.

the relay for the fogs is number 5 i think, the bentley/haynes has the diagram but im sure u know that lol
