Full Control of Fogs

Has anyone done this, i did it a while ago, and ever since my drivers side bulb always blows within a week, so you think its because of the full control, or could there be a short somewhere, or is it just the the foglights leak moisture in and blow it out, it ALWAYS the drivers side, i think im gonna disconnect, but i wanna get opinions first

Questions...

How often do you have the fogs on?

And when you have them on, and turn your brights on, do the fogs turn off? They are supposed to, and if both are on at the same time, that could be the reason.

you touching the bulb?

Are you asking if full control will help you or asking if full control is causing it?

I've had mine done fer a while and the bulbs last as long as before. You prolly have a problem with that light fixture.


There was a time when I replaced fog bulbs once a month until I put the stocks back in.

well, i make sure i dont touch the bulb because i thought that was part of the problem, so is it the full control causing it, or should i just disconnect it to see what it does then, what are the brightest H3's out there

No its not the full control dood if that was a problem they would'nt werk at all.


See how loose the light fixture is attached I've noticed that my bulbs blow when I hit a pothole er sumthin.
