fog lights not working. need help???

i cant seem to get my fog lights to work. i checked am both bulbs are good. i did pull out the headlight switch. i checked fuse 43 an its good. i popped dash out an checked wires to headlight switch an found the wire for the fog lights,yellow wire on my 05. its getting power when i pull the headlight switch out to turn on fog lights. pulled plugs of of fog lights an getting no power to them.

they use to work. i put in some HID headlights an they still worked. then i put some led's in my instrument cluster an sometimes they would work an sometimes not. now they wont come on at all.

thanks for any an all help.

Both not working? How do you know both HID lights are still good? Do you have a spare HID light or a spare ballast to check?

It has factory bulbs in it now. It's getting no Power to the bulbs. I don't have the HID kit in it yet.

The ignition has to be on for the fog lights to be on.

Ok I may have an answer
You installed an LED light in the high beam indicator I would bet.
I was reading somewhere that:
The fog lights use the ground though the high bean
indicator bulb so that when you have 12V (high bean on) the relay for the
for lights does not have a ground and drops out. If you used LEDs in the dash
lights the LED diode will only power to flow one way like a check valve.
You may be able to switch the way the LED is installed and that may work or not.
Your just going to have to try.
Let us know what you find.
Sean
P.S. I could always be wrong

Just to add to this.... If you get a Britebox, they have a kit that allows the factory fog/driving lights to stay on when your lights are switched to highbeam as well. Pretty handy if you drive at night in the country!

However, I am certain it does not work with HID conversion kits.

So if I'm Thinkin correctly. The led I put in my high beam indicator is what's not letting my fog lights work.

If that's the case I should b able to do the fog light mod where you cut the light at the relay that's on. Ack of the fuse box. Ground it. An all should be good again.

If this sounds right please let me know. I don't want to cut the wire an it not work.

Yes that should work.

Also if you take that LGBK wire where it crosses over to the
point at S203 and ground it on the fog side. Just make sure that
the wire size is right.

So that is where I had seen that.
But yes that is a very easy job.
Only 2 beers ? Hmm You will have to
find more work on the truck to finish that 6pack.

BTW anyone know about the info display mod to keep it bright all the time?
