fog light fuse.

Can any one tell me which fuse controls the fog lights. i just bought a set of fog lights and installed them several day ago. and it killed my battery. I took the negative side off the battery to find the parasitic draw. . I had 0.81 on the amps and new that i had just installed these fog lights and called the company to ask why that might be happening. they told me I needed to put a higher voltage fuse in the fog light spot. ??? That doesn't sound right to me but i ma not very good at electrical so if anyone could help me out please.

You have been given some bad information.

The JK fog lights don't have fuses. The circuits are protected electronically on the TIPM circuit board.

Also, never "fix" an electrical issue by installing a higher rated fuse.

Did you already have fog lights installed and were just replacing them or are you trying to install new ones where there was none before?
