Exclamation Fog lights not working!

Hey everyone. So last night went to the store and found out only one fog light was working (driver side). So today went and tried replacing/fixing the HIDs in them. Found out that my fuse inside the cab was blown. I checked all the wires and made sure nothing was connected wrongly. Also check the tail lights and made sure that was okay. And still fuses are blowing. The fuse under the hood is all good.

Only the fog lights are not working. Everything else seems to work perfectly; cluster lights, parking lights, heads and tails all good.

So any help with this would really be appreciated! Thank you!

-Jordan

Vehicle: 02 Edge V6 3.0.

Will it blow the fuse if you put your stock bulb back in?

I do not have any stock bulbs only my HIDs. I took out the HIDs and left the fog light wiring harness empty and put in a new fuse and it still popped. Oh and I'm all out of fuses because I popped so many!

Best bet would be to trouble shoot the harness because it sounds like you have a short somewhere

That is what my dad is saying. I'll try and look into it and trace the fog light harness and find any wire that is causing the short. If I can't find anything, then I might as well re wire the fogs onto a relay and then wire that up to my OEM fog light switch so I can turn on and off the fogs whenever I want
