Some foglight issues!

I recently bought a set of winjet fog lights, I wired them up in accordance with a number of tutorials here.

Right now the light on the fog light button will turn on inside the car but when I push the button the lights do not come on.

I figured that since the wires are all connected (one big circuit?) Wouldn't the light coming on inside mean the wiring is correct?

Does this mean I have bad bulbs? Or could something else be the culprit?

Any suggestions on how to diagnose would be appreciated.

Pics of the wiring might help out

Not sure if you've solved it by now but, I just installed this kit on my car and had no issue other than the ground wire to the actual harness in the engine bay being really short.

IIRC, the switch itself has it's own power loop and the yellow wire (signal I suppose) is used to turn on the actual fogs. If you've checked the bulbs and you know for sure it's okay, check that yellow wire going from the fog light switch into the engine bay. Could be that, could also be a bad ground in the harness. I don't have pics but I just found an existing ground (on the front driver side frame below airbox) and just wired the harness to that.

Hope that helps.
