From your description, it’s hard for me to tell what’s going on here. It sounds like you’re wiring in aftermarket spot lights. If you have power to the lights and they still don’t work, either the lights are faulty or they don’t have a good ground. You can check the ground theory by jumping the lights to ground with a wire and seeing if they come on. If they illuminate when jumped, you know you don’t have a good ground.
