    Tried the Fog light anytime mod today and got it to work but noticed when i went to turn my DTRL on they wouldn't turn on in the first position of my light switch but they do turn on, on the second potion so checked all my fuses thinking i blew one. after checking all my fuses (all were good) i decided to take everything off and put everthing back to normal to see if that would resolve the issue but it didn't, and now im wondering what i could have done wrong/what went wrong and how to fix it.

    I remember when i was splicing into the green wire i might have made contact with the engine with the other end of the wire before it was conected to the foglight relay(shorting the green wire since its a hot wire from my understanding not sure on that though) but idk if that would be the cause of my problem or if thats even what happened im just thinking of what could have gone wrong.
    hope i was informative enough for someone to understand my question and issue this is my first post/question thanks everyone!
    P.S If this question has been answered in the past can someone please send me a link?

    stupid question but did you check the bulbs to see if by any chance you burnt them when you made contact with the engine? Easiest solution might be it.

    and i followed these instruction on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GENGMMiAOHk&t=277s
    you can see the green wire i taped in to it was one on a connector located on the top right corner of the fuse box when standing on the side of the fender.

    Checked all fuses. Everything is good. Even checked them with a meter. I did a fog light mod and all this happened . The mod worked. Put everything back to normal and this happens
