I've had the fogs working for about 3 months and all of a sudden they just stopped working. I've rewired it and tried it again, but still no luck. Can anyone tell me any causes for this problem?

so what are you doing to do.. BTW who did you buy from on Ebay? and was the fog switch in side the correct size and everything?
If you are gonna buy from ebay i would buy your fogs from seller: motorblvd
My fogs are awesome and he threw in a switch that is almost oem.
The switch looks oem but the light on it doesn't exactly match the color of the other oem switches...only off by a little bit not a huge deal...but great person to deal with...hope this helps

it looks like your fuse didn't do what its suppose to do. which is blow out before melting everything. lucky nothing caught on fire.

Yea a fuse should not melt like that. Did you put in a bigger fuse at any point? Looks like the fuse might have been too big for the fogs and instead of blowing it started to overheat and melt. I say just wire in another inline fuse holder and put in a lower fuse.

got mine from motorblvd and they're working great. might just be the wrong fuse amp rating. Mine is a 20A fuse

I'm gonna save up for OEM fogs. The seller was trendgear. I followed the Acura OEM fog DIY. I guess it was just faulty wiring? But it still sucks..
mine were from trendgear also. no problem with them at all other than the plugs weren't the right one so they didn't fit the ones in the car. its not hard to make them fit.

Hey man I know how you feel...I had the exact same problem but I didn't lose hope. All I did was just upgrade the fuse to a 15A fuse and that solved the issue forever. Again, I'm just telling you what worked for me. I checked out the entire system too and the fuse melting was the only problem. Just try it and see what happens...its worth the shot!!!:thumbsup:

I didn't change fuses at all. I just put in with what the package came with.

Yeah i had the same prob. I just carved the little connectors and wrapped it in electircal tape so they wouldn't move. I still have no idea how the fuse melted though. :dontknow:.. My HIDs maybe?
