did you blow the fuse?

Are both bulbs burned out?

Due to the design of our fog light housings (stock) they like to eat silver star bulbs. The vibration and jiggling of the stock housing is VERY hard on the SS bulbs.

Agreed. Next time my SS fogs blow out, the whole system is getting replaced with Cyberwhite Navigators

More like 40ish. For 20ish, you can get ProBurners, like I have, at WallyWorld.
