Default Problem with lights

Hey guys..me again, while attempting to put my fog lights in ...I got everything spliced and used shrink tubes to hook it all together... installed the brackets back in , when i went to try my lights.. i heard a pop , the radio shut off and now when i put the lights on they are dim..like its draining power...Is there a fuse for this ..or has anyone had this problem before... can someone help..im frustrated trying to figure this out.

Sounds like a short somewhere. Recheck the wiring.

make sure there'* no hot wire grounding out on metal--and that all grounds are tight. A loose ground will cause dim lights also.
Did you replace the blown fuse? What happened?

BB23..... any luck with those lights yet?

Just curious if the horn was the source of the problem.
(fog lights share the same fuse as the horn)

I know it'* been raining down here everyday for the last two weeks.... have you guys had a break up there yet? (so you can work on the car).
