    You must have a dead short somewhere. Was it ok before you changed the foglights?

    Is it a 5 amp fuse? If so then that is IIRC for the headlights/fog lights

    IIRC If I Recall Correctly
    Sorry, if you have said but did the car have the foglights as standard? Or have you added them after.
    Just trying to get my head around this for you mate

    Start from the basics first.
    First thing i would do is unplug both fog lights and see if that fuse still blows mate.
    If it is still blowing you will have a seperate fault, and we will need to sort that first.
    If it doesnt blow with the fog lights connected we know the fault is in that circuit

    That fuse is for the fog light relay coil. Check that it is ok. Take the relay out then replace the fuse, switch on fogs and see if it blows.
