I need help ASAP

so i just installed some aftermarket fogs and i wired them into the driving lights(the little orange bulb in the corner on the lights) and all was fine turned on the lights worked like a charm turnd off the lights put the grille back together and tried them one more time and nothing...the driving lights dont come on at all not when i have the hi/low beams on not when i put just the driving lights on and the fogs don't work now either. what could have gone wrong in that 10 minute window....

Sounds like you blew a fuse.

1st gen or 2nd gen?

A new fuse probably won't solve the problem. Do not buy a higher amperage fuse either to replace it. Get an "add-a-fuse" instead. Chances are, you still have a spare fuse in the fusebox somewhere. Check the fuses under the coin tray. The 3rd fuse on the top ("TAIL", 10A) should be the culprit if you did indeed wire the aux lights to the parking lights, like you said you did. This fuse also regulates your taillights. Turn your lights on and if they dont work, thats it. (Taillights, not brakelights)
