you probley blew a fuse,best way to hook them up is hook to the low beam wire on your headlights,just skin back on the wire and tie into it ,tape around it,left to left,right to right,then ground them,use a test light to see if you did blow a fuse,if you touched the wires and got a spark you did blow a fuse.

You either blew a fuse or fried the switch.

I think i said that,along with a better way to hook them up.

And your point being what? I agreed with your comment that he could have blown a fuse... I also stated the switch may have been fried as well (which you did not mention)...

And 2nd (since you brought it up)... Hooking them up to the low beams is not a better way... It is incredibly lazy and puts an excess load on the headlight switch. The proper way they should be hooked up is on an independent switch.. This will save many headaches down the road..

i agree with michael,an indepandent swich his your best way,but if u do hook them up to low beams the proper way to do it is to use relays.there a bit more complicated to hook up but worth it.that way u wont overload your low beam swich and the wires wont get hot.
