Fog Light problem 2nd Gen

Hey guys yesterday I removed my headlights and painted them black and put them back in and now one of my fog lights is not working. Maybe it's a random and the light burnt out but it just seems strange. The truck is only 2 years old.

thanks

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Check the connections, then check the bulb. If you touched the bulb with your fingers, chances are, it burned out.

i did it seems to be in good. I didn't remove the fog lights, but maybe my arm moved the wire around while I was reaching for a really high bolt on the side of the head light.

Hey Chris I was trying to remove the connection and then reconnect it, but was unsure how. Do you know how?

You have to squeez the sides, and pull out iirc.

I attempted a few times to squeeze the sides but I am unable to remove it. Have you seen any photos on line that you could direct me to so i can see exactly what I need to do.

thanks
