Default Light Problem

Ok here we go I have a auxilary switch wired to my halos and fogs.All of a sudden today when I fluck the switch with my headlights on after a car wash it went on and stood on for 20 minutes the powered off.I am unable to power it on.I use this as my source of lights since one of my ballasts is not working(seperate issue,replacing the ballast soon),all fuses r good except for the one with the bad ballast.Any input?

Check the feed into the switch, and the feed out of the switch...if you've got power at both places then the problem is between the switch and the lights.

The switch works it just doesnt light up 1 foglight and lighting the fog the regular way in the inside of the car by turning the headlight switch does not give it current either

You should have power going into the switch, and power going out of the switch, when the switch is flipped on. Check the feed into the switch, and make sure you have power there. Then flip the switch on, and check the power feed going out of the switch (to the lights) and make sure you have power there. If yes to both, then your problem is somewhere between the switch and the lights.

If it's only 1 foglight, then swap the bulbs and see if the problem persists, or if it follows the bulb.
