Icon5 OEM fog light problems.. Help?

So I have the fog lights hooked up, the relay plugged in and the tweeter switch plugged in as well. My problem is that when my low beams are on I press the switch to turn the foggie's on, nothing happens. The orange indication light doesn't come on as well too. Only thing that seems to light up is the back-light in the fog light switch. Any advice?

Do you have the fuse plugged into the fuse box?

When I got them I was told they were good but haven't checked since the screws are sealed shut to the housing. I almost stipped a screw tryin' to get it out. and yes. the fuse for it is good.

When you click the switch on check for power at the fog light plugs. Oh and if you are having issues getting the three screws out. Get a **** ton of PB blaster find something big enough to dunk the bottom half of the fog lights in and fill it up with PB blaster and let it sit for a day or so. I had to on mine.

Thanks! That stuff did work. Got em' out. So it was the bulbs. Got them replaced as well as getting a new relay too. Problem solved!
