How did you splice the wires? Check your connections.

nvm fixed. gota friend who is an electrican i have HID's running thru my foglights totally independent.
oh and i had to run a seperate switch right next to my cruise control button.

Supplies needed were from auto zone lol.-
20 ft 14g black wire
20 ft 14g red wire.. tied one end to a pole and used a power drill to twist them together and make it taught then used electrical tape so it didnt untwist. (which was pretty smart i would've never thought of that) hah
a duck bill switch
fuse tap (atm type)
some 15A fuses. tried 7.5A but it blew right away

oh and my ballasts for the hid's were mounted behind the fogs which means i had to take my front bumper off.'

lights off, fogs on
parking lots on, fogs on
high beam, fogs on!
