Hella 500 inop

Ive had them on my truck for about 9 months, Used the switch that it comes with as well as relay. Relay has not gotten wet, No corrosion on any connecting points.

Went to turn them on the other day and nothing, Checked all the wiring, fuse is good

Do they have problems with the switches or relays going bad that are supplied with the kit?
