Default Fog Lights Hooked Up To Headlights.. :/

Hey guys um... just wondering what you guys think....
I bought my Cruiser about a month ago I'd say and the Fog Lights never worked instead the dealer pulled the fuse out and had me take it off the lot without even knowing. Anyways since they I complained to the dealer about it and I brought it in to them the next day he gave me back my car telling me he fixed it and he paid "$400" to get it done the only thing was that now it comes on only when the Headlights are on. So then the next day I took I looked at the fuse box and it turns out he just ended up running a wire from the headlight wire to the #8 fuse so when the headlights come on it gives power to the Fog Fuse and it comes on like that.. Now does that seem safe to you or should I complain???

A lot of people have had problems with the fog lights and the multi-function switch. There have been some fires. I would not want the fog lights on all of the time just for that reason. Tell them you want it done right.

see now thats gonna be hard... seeing that there sayin they spent $400 to set it up which i HIGHLY!!! doubt it but when I tried to bring this up to them they said they fixed it the Fog Lights work... is there anyway around it?
Plus if I was to do it myself I cant find the Multifunction switch online.. hmm...
