I added the fog lights, and I have a separate switch for them. I haven't had the time to check just yet.

Do the LEDs have inline resistors? If not then it is likely you have burnt out the LEDs as they are designed to work at a low voltage. Much like trying to cut a cake with a chainsaw. Too much kills it.

My only suggestion from there would then be to crack out the multimeter and go charge hunting!

Just remember and mark the circuits/cables you have tested!

I stupidly didnt my first time ans spent hours because I kept forgetting where I had tested to so kept starting over - was not a nice experience!

Hey guys, I haven't been active in a couple years now. I just wanted to give an update that everything is still working solid on my headlights almost 5 years after installation. I'm really sorry but I had to remove my pictures from the thread since it was associated with my name when googled. PM me if you need any assistance and I'll send you the link to them
