So here's my dilemma

As I've stated before the previous owner of my beauty installed halo fog lights I yanked those lights out and purchased regular fog lights when I tried to tap them into my headlights they just burnt out completely. I'm thinking this is because of my hid lights on my headlights there only 6,000 k but my guess is it was to much wattage?
Can this be it. I won't dare mess with the horrific wiring they did. Please help idk what to buy.
I know I could buy the wiring harness but its expensive and I'm broke :(
Please help me:(
What do I need to buy

6000K is just the color temperature of your bulbs. But the Ballast is another story. Does your car have a factory fog light switch? If not, you'll have to wire up your own fuseable link and switch off of the battery or an unused accessory port in the fuse block. I wouldn't recommend taping into your headlights or parking lights. There too much risk of over surging the circuit.

So then primer what do I need to buy be exact.

Ok, I'll put together a shopping list while you study this diagram.

This is the exact diagram I used when I installed fog lights on my Mack Truck. It's completely legitimate with guaranteed sexy results. Btw, you're gonna have to gut all that bogus wiring that was pre existing and be sure to tape off all the factory wiring that the old fogs tapped into.

You'll need...

14 gauge wire spool (black/ground)
16 gauge wire spool (red/power)
87 4 pin relay (1)
15 amp fusible links (2)
Toggle switch (1)
Assorted male and female connectors 14 & 16 gauge.
Electric tape
Wire strippers
Jack links beef jerky (2)
Small zip ties
Black plastic conduit wrap

That should just about cover it.

Here's what your relay should look like after you wire it up. Wire Cable Electrical wiring Electronic device Technology


If you go through with it, document as much as you can. I'm sure the others could make good use of a write up like this.
