KC electrical issue

i bought some KC long range slimlites in january. a week ago i had them on driving down a dark road and my drivers side went dim. i thought it was weird so i just cut them off. when i got home i tried to cut them back on and the drivers side wouldnt work, then the passengers side died and the light on the switch went out. i got a new relay from KC and nothing. ive redone the wires and tried a new switch.

does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

It could be a couple of things... ground not good, bulb not good... did you solder... cold solder, what kind of connectors did you use? If you have some use some dielectric grease on them.

Hope that helps.

thanks for your response.

i checked both bulbs. they are good
the ground is good.

what exactly should i have soldered?

i have the power and ground from the relay hooked up.
the fuses on the white and yellow lines are both good.
the connections on the lights to the wires are good.
the other ground for the switch is good.

im completely stumped here

do you have a volt meter? make sure your getting 12. watts of power on your connection where you hook up the lights... it just sounds like you don't have a good connection somewhere. Did you use the factory harness? If you didn't splice any wire you won't have a cold solder joint. I would use dielectric grease on your connectors on the relay, at the lights and switch and see if that works. Test your ground again just to make sure.
