Default wiring for aftermarket driving lights

I bought a set of pilot "driving lights" for my 95 SC2. I've installed plenty of these type light in the past for myself and others and have gotten pretty good at it. However, I ran into a problem when wiring these pilots. Included in the wiring is a red wire which they say is for hooking them up to your parking lights. It also includes a funky lookin blue connector which is supposed to be used for this purpose. The instructions were pretty vague in how to do this, so i decided to skip that step and run the wire to my battery. With all of the experience out there, I'm sure someone knows how to hook this up to the the parking lights. Any information would be greatly appriciated, but if anyone knows for sure how to do this I would really appriciate some info. I'm pretty bad with instructions ( I usually throw them away when i buy something new) so the more detail the better. Thanks to all who respond.

The following is generic...
That blue connector looks like a tap. It should be the control wire for the relay, whereby you can only turn the fogs on when the parking lamps are on effectively tying your fogs with the headlight-on warning system.
Yes, the fused hot that feeds the fogs through the relay should be ran from the battery. This would carry the load more efficiently. Remember to use a heavier gauge wire than required and run it the shortest length as possible for resistance. Also, weatherproof all connections.
Good luck.
