I just bought fog lights for my 99 civic.
I installed them and a 2 weeks later one of the bulbs went out
I just bought some more bulbs for the fog light and these bulbs reads: H3 12v 100watt
My old bulb read: H3 12v 55watt
If i install these bulbs will i blow a fuse or melt my wires????
I don't know if these bulb will mess something up
Any help

That's a halogen bulb leo.

Go with the wattage that was given with the units. If they are ebay crap they are going to cook with the 100% increase in wattage for sure.

Upgrade your wiring and get fog light housings that can handle 100w. That or get bulbs that are rated for your current set up.
