I am having a small issue with my Korean Market I30 led foglight wich were installed on my canadian GT

everything is wired correctly (as I can see) but i am having a small issue, and here it is

The led themselves, alone are lighting up no problem no issue whatsoever !
but the thing is when i flick the foglight switch to ON, the driver side led and fog are lit while the passenger side has everything turned off, if I nflick the switch off, the led comes back on both sides.
I checked the LED power lead everything is good, even if i unplug it the issue remains
I checked the 880 halogen bulb power lead, even when unplugged the problem remains
could it be a ground issue ?

ps the wiring is done with a Blazer foglight wiring kit and a bosch relay

frustrating problem it is , I would need help or advices !

It sounds like a ground issue. Can you tell me a bit more about relay , main power supply and ground source(s)?

ok the relay main power is the battery (fused to 10 amps) , the signal wire is tapped to pdm2 7.5 amp in the fuse box (limited access and my fuse tap still havent shown up) , the ground wire is the fender bolt (for both the relay and foglight), the accessory wire goes to the foglight halogen bulbs

Try moving the ground(s) to the battery or one of the main grounds coming off the battery ( the one going to the body near battery ) . It could be in the switch internally as well. Does you switch have a on/off indicator light and separate ground for it ( like diagram below ) ?

Do the tail lights on the one side also go out when everything is turned on?
