Fog lights quit working
Install new KC fog lights last night everything worked fine. Washed salt off at car wash and lights worked after that. Stopped in town and on way home went to turn them on and nothing. Everything checks out ok? Any thought? Relay go bad?

Jumper around the relay and see.

Jump around relay?

Possibly blew a fuse. Check the fuses on the wire that leads to the lights. Pretty basic but can be forgotten. In my case the entire wire fried but I never use them so I haven't done anything about it yet.

I have the KC`s as well

Maybe a short from the water? How well did you weatherproof the wiring?

Everything was dry with the exception of the connections at the lights. Should I wrap that connection with elec. tape? I mounted the relay high on the firewall.

Yes first thing I check were fuses.

Thank you to everyone who replied. After buying a volt meter for $25 it was something simple that was wrong. I mount my relay and ground with the same screw on the firewall. screw must have lost contact with wire and since the firewall is painted... No Ground...
