Fog Lights not working!?!

Ok my fog lights havent been working since I got the car 2 weeks ago. So I was like I'll get around to fixing them. So today I was like "s***, I dont have nething else to do" so I went outside took my fog lights out and the bulb on my passenger side was ok but the one on the driver side was blown. but I figured the passenger side one would work either way. not to mention I had checked my fuse a few days prior to this point and it was ok... ok so I check to see if my fogs are even getting power... Nope... So then I check to see if my switch is getting power... Nope... Well ok enough of me typing I know ur tired of reading this. lol. So could somebody tell me why my switch isnt getting power? Any advice would be nice! Thanks!

I'm trying to remember how the fog cicuit worked on that car. I know it's a tricky one. I believe they are paralleled w/ the parking lights. i'll see if I can find the schematic for 3rd gen. lighting system. Check the fuses again though. Is there one under the hood labeled for fog lights? Any other circuits not working?

nah everything works fine other than my cruise control but i doubt that has anything to do with my fogs. my park lights work. my fogs have a separate switch than my parks.

Check page 16-7 on 62sf121.pdf for your schematic.

If all the other parts of your lighting work, my instinct would be to check the NO. 9 Fuse (15A) which looks like it will be located on the fuse panel under the dash.

As i look at the diagram, it looks like it may be a break in the wire somewhere b/w the fuse panel and the swicth. I don't see any other components in the line that would not also affect other parts of the lighting circuit. You could try to further isolate the prob by running a temporary fused jumper wire to the hot side of the switch and see if you get any results. also if it seems like your getting strange results, it is probably a bad ground somewhere.

Each fog light has a ground that always come loose on 3g's.
Secure it down and it should work...
