    so ive got HIDs from "slimcubby" in my heads & fogs, 35w to be exact...ive had them for 8 months now, never had a problem before, til the other day my fogs quit working and i traced it to a blown fuse under the hood that goes to them! its a 15amp fuse, well i put another in it and they worked, but it was blowed the next day!! WTF should i try a 20 or 25amp fuse or what??

    Find out what might be causing the fuse to blow. Never use a higher AMP fuse.

    do you have your fog switch on when you turn your headlights on? or do you have the fog light mod where they run full time?
