STUPID APC!

angry angry angryya know, I've never been a fan of APC brand products but I say a set of foglights at pepboys, they seemed pretty cool, they had built in angel eyes with a controller to change the color of the angel eyes. I figured "How can APC mess up fog lights?" Well they did!! After I finished installing them when I turned them on the controller caught on FIRE!! I hurried up and turned them off, it looked like it was just the color controller was fried b/c the actual fog lights still worked. I figured I could just exchange the controller. On my way to pepboys I rolled my windows down cause it was nice out, and now my passenger window DOESN"T WORK EITHER!!! I HATE APC!!! tomorrow I'm gonna take out the fog lights so fast and throw them back at pepboys and yell at them for carrying such CRAP!!! angry angry angryI don't even know how to fix my window now, all the fuses are still good. can anyone help me?

Although I agree that APC is crap, the fire may have had something to do with your wiring, I did the same thing once with some leds. I dunno what to tell you about your window, sorry.

As I said, I didn't think they could mess up fog lights, the only good thing that came from the is that when i removed the front bumper to do some custom mounting I took off the Toyota emblem

I bet you did it wrong. They wouldn't sell something that did that. Hopefully you only blew a fuse. I had to replace my window switch box. It was expensive.

why not test the products BEFORE installing them?

you can check them by wiring directly from battery easily.
