I have purchased fog lights but how do i connect these now ?

Is there a standard feature in my Toyota Rav 4 built in 1998 to connect these?

Most likely there is. I have completed the installation on my 99 European model.

Firstly, check this link for info: RAV4 - Fog Light Wiring

Use the single red wire as the power feed for both lights and ground them at a good ground point.
Location of the plug with the red wire:

On 98+ models, the relay and fuse sockets for the fogs are situated inside the smaller relay box in the engine bay between the driver's side headlamp and the driver's side strut mount.
Use a headlamp relay (as suggested in the link above) and a 10amp fuse (if your lights are rated at 55W each or lower).
In the picture below, I used the 10amp fuse for the seat heaters (with which my car is not equipped) and placed it in the next spot:

I am in the process of installing driving/fog lights as well on my CUTE 1997 two door. I found the above-mentioned connector behind the radiator with the single wire running from it but, after nearly removing the fuse/relay box that does NOT have a space for the FOG relay, could not find where the red wire went: it is not part of the bundle that goes there. There is a open space without a relay and the diagram has DIM on it. Not sure what that is. There is also a blank fuse holder in the fuse box near the hood release that has an "X" in the diagram but a *********** line to and a GREEN with ORANGE stripe 16g wire coming from that. Obviously that is for something my car doesn't have (ABS, heated seats, power windows) but I can't trace where that green wire goes. It may be what I tap for my LED running lights that don't need a relay (pictures forthcoming when I get them wired up; they are installed, just no power to them yet). My driving lights should arrive this weekend! I'll keep you posted..........
