Dead Fog Lights

I recently upgraded my headlights to 100w bulbs and wanted to upgrade the fogs to match. They came in yesterday but when I put them in, they didn't work. I figured the 100w popped the fuse but it did not. I put the old bulbs back in and they didn't work either. I replaced the fuse anyway but I am getting no voltage to the connector. Any ideas? Is there another plug that may have come loose further up the wire somewhere? The bulbs were working perfectly on three days ago when I drove it last.

They are supposed to look like HID but they are xenon. I just put the 80/100w headlights in and I have to say, I thought they would be brighter. They are whiter (8500k) but not much brighter.

I didn't have much time today but I found a plug on top of the frame right under the air filter and it was good. It had a couple of clips between it and the plugs so if it was good, nothing further up the line is going to be disconnected either.

Mine did the same thing when I changed from stock to 55w hid. I ended up giving up and ran power to the ballasts and putting a toggle in the cab and it works good.

It has got to be something easy. The wires couldn't have fried because the fuse didn't pop. I found the closest connection to the bulbs and it was hooked to the frame right below the air filter so the wires beyond it could have even moved, much less came disconnected. If I ever get time, I'm going to check continuity between the switch and the bulb. Do they have a relay? I didn't see one in the panel under the steering column.

No they don't. I'm pretty sure the switch carries the entire load.
