Unhappy Help ! High beams and fog lights don' t work ! Low beams are ok.

I just noticed tonight that my high beams and fog lights don' t work. My low beams are ok. My fog lights seem to work sometimes which is weird. When I turn on my high beams, the head lights go out. The parking lights are fine, though. Is there something wrong with my connections or is it a fuse issue ? I have aftermarket head light bulbs. They' re the "HID-look" ones. Some asian no name brand. I also have Oshram yellow fog light bulbs.

I' m going to check out my fuses in the morning. Anyone know what' s going on with my lights ?

If your low beams work it isn't the headlight fuses.
Check the bulbs, the high beam filaments may both be burned out.
And you should avoid those cheap bulbs, even the supposedly stock wattage ones have been known to run hot and cause harness and connector damage. Take a close look at your headlight wiring, the bulbs may have toasted it.

Check out the underhood "switch" fuze just below the headlight fuses. It's a yellow (20a) fuze. I popped mine last night by accident, and it did the same thing.

good luck

I checked the fuses and they seem fine. I' m thinking it' s my bulbs or my connections. My connections don't look fried but I don' t know wiring or electronics.

I' ll check out my bulbs first.
