Fog Lights

I ordered HID fog's from hidwerks..
I took out the headlight and headlight bracket with the horn,
I plug and played everything into the car, and now my fogs ( with hids) won't turn on, but my amber bulbs in the headlight do.
Does anyone have a step-by-step for insterting HID's into fogs?

Did you tap into the right wire? You may have spliced the power from fogs to signal on headlights. Dunno the aftermarket's wiring diagram, but they generally use the common color coded wires (red-positive, blue-signal, black-ground).

When I did my headlights all the wires looked the same, due to weathering. So I had to use one of those electrician tools to detect which wire had power

So if you get one(a multi meter I think) it would be much easier
