Trouble With Fog Light Installation

I Replaced my stock bumper with a nerf set and mounted new Hella 100 w fog lamps. Tried to wire them with existing wires from stock fog lights that were in stock bumper. Lights turn on when light switch activated, but then flash a couple times then go out completely. I'm no electrician and I'm out of ideas. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

I am no expert but I believe the stock lights don't carry that much wattage. You will most likely need to run power to the lights via a relay. The stock wiring isn't up to the task of running that kind of light power. I'm sure someone else will chime in, but I know a couple of people that have swapped out stock fogs to aftermarket due to bumper swaps and somewhere in the system you will need to install the relay. Sorry I can't give you more than that. I'll search around and see if I can't find a wiring print to do it. I know it has been done.
