Replaced Fog Lights w Yellow Hella Optilux, HLs w Phillips X-treme ,How'd They Look?
Philips X-treme 80+ look great, did a 3m headlight polish w my recently acquired air tools and they are the non HID bulb to buy, the end.
I'm having problems with my fog lights, please help if anyone can! After researching and troubleshooting, I am still struggling to understand what I can do to make my fog lights work again.
-OE harness and original fogs were working prior to installing the yellow Hella bulbs
Then installed and still currently installed the Optilux
Bulb specs: Hella H10 12v 42w yellow
-Did the ignition / key trick to determine there were 0 trouble codes, got the "done"
I've reset the battery, both cables for +15mins
Drove it to dinner and back
and now back to researching wtf happened
Important details to note
Before my most recent attempt (hella h10 yellows), I did a trial install with a set of HIDs 3000k to see how they'd look, didn't work, flickered about 3 x then no signal, similar to what's happening now. Then, removed and replaced with the stock whitish H10s. I even asked it nicely to correct the troublesome pc after I took it for a ride. No love..
Should I reset for 8+hrs?
Put the stock bulbs back in to see what up?
Or go gamble $ at a shop and hope for a result?
Shoot, I'd even paypal someone enough for a beer if they can help me out. Sucks when you wait for things to come in the mail and they don't work. Like a toy on Christmas but no batteries.
