new light bar lights stopped working

i just intalled two pairs of hella 500 driving lights on my light bar. it's been raining in Vegas for the past couple of days and they've been working great. this morning i pull into work and i flip them on (as i usually do to piss off the security guard) and the lights didn't come on.

there's been heavy heavy rain and flooding, sometimes the puddles are deeper than i thought and water splashes all over.

where should i start?

there's 1 relay, and two fuses. i know how to check the fuses but where else could it have gone bad?

could be a ground wire, check where they are grounded too.

maybe the security guard had something to do with it. lucky he didn't shoot first thinking you were a terrorist

Start probing with a test light. Check the ground
