Integrated fog lights not working...

I replaced my fog bulbs with some discount super whites. The driver side one burned out so I just decided to put my old ones back in. I replaced the driver side one and checked to see if it would turn on, and it did. Then I replaced the passenger side super white with the original but afterwords, neither of the fogs would turn on, I can hear the click when I flip the fog switch but nothing else happens. I disconnected and reconnected both of the wires from the bulbs but still no luck.

Got any ideas to what's up?

Edit: Welp, I just saw that there are spare fuses, so I replaced the fog fuse with the new one, turned the fogs on then the fuse blew...Guess I'll just take it in to my dealership.

Replying to Topic 'Integrated fog lights not working...'

You have a defective bulb or you are not wired as you should be... You are making a short with the last bulb you changed....

Any luck with this? I had bought the Xtec bulbs from Donny at RPM and one went out and so he replaced them for free and I noticed the other day they weren't working. I checked the fuse and it was blown, replaced it and it blew again. I was trying to see if I could get some feedback on others who have experienced this prior to digging into the wiring.

if you hear the click/flip sound when you turn on something, that's the fuse just blew... check whether any positive is touching the negative... i would check the fog bulb holder.. since the negative is basically connected to the prj IIRC, if your positive is touching it, then there you go... blew fuse...

Checked my fog light connections and sure enough, the driverside light was shorting itself so I moved it out of the way tested and they work!
