    So I have the K5 6,000 Lumen CREE LED bulbs in my fogs, about 1 year old. About a week ago I noticed that the fogs would randomly shut off and I would need to "restart" them by flipping the switch off and back on again. Any idea what could be causing this and how to start trouble shooting? Thanks.

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Why is it that I go and look at so many Kia Optima's. And it seems they don't put fog lights in a lot of them anymore. Some have what looks to be some decretive lights for somebody to see you. But they don't light up the road like Fog lights do. It would be hard for me to trade in a 2015...
