Default Fog lights control head lights

Have a 2001 escape. Replaced headlights to Led. Fog lights now don't work nor the fog light switch light. Press fog switch and it turns on high and low beam lights. What is wrong

What kind of instructions did you get with the replacement lights?
Did you get a complete kit or just decide to swap a few lights?

I got lights that are suppose to be plug and play all built in to bulb. Head lights work. No high beam indicator now. So jump positive side low beam to fog light relay. That now activates the relay for fog light when low beams are on. Thinking maybe bad light head light switch.

At the fog light switch I get 10.3 volts at battery 12.8. If I push the fog light switch it changes high and low beam. Now that I jumped the fog relay the only thing not working is the high beam indicator. The voltage to the fog light should be coming out of the head light switch. Not a loop through head lights.
