HID Help

so i wired in my hids. headlights are working just fine. the problem comes to the fog lights. i started my truck then turned them on and both sides turned on, problem is now they both turned off at the same time. and the fog light switch on my radio bezel is not lit up when it should be. any suggestions? could it be something as simple as a fuse?

Check the fuse. You may need a relay for them if you don't have one already. You can pick up a relay off Ebay for like $5.

Sounds like the fuse, or a bad ground.

Yup was the fuse. When I tested them out they worked fine, then since I had the same problem Shane had with the fogs I had to cut the wires and the hot and ground touched before I got the wires tucked away and it caused the fuse to blow.
