If you want to use the factory switch you will need software downloaded into the car.

Aftermarket switch?
Oem wiring?
If so then no but you would still have to figure the wires out from the back of the headlight switch.

Couldn't you just use a common ground and put a toggle switch hooked up to the battery direct..from an auto parts store on the dash somewhere..?
