I've tried earlier today. I'm just curious if anyone has a short term fix for this issue. Don't want to drive around without working lights

My suggestion would be to build your own relay harness. Otherwise, The Retrofit Source makes very good stuff, and you may be able to utilize their relay harness with your existing ballasts.

I'm not very smart when it comes to building things like that. I've looked at the retrofit source one and it looks like really good quality. I'll order one of those.

I was able to take a picture of the fuse that came from the relay, and it looks like it melted a bit/twisted etc. Would you happen to know what causes something like this?

Could be heat, a fuse and harness just barely big enough for the needed current, a poor connection somewhere that would have cause arcing and heat buildup. Could be a lot of things.
