Default Factory Fogs Not Working

My factory fog lights went out when I was trying to wire up cab roof lights. Right not the roof lights are not wired to anything and I am trying to figure out why my fogs went out. Both fog lights won't turn on or the light indicator on the factory switch.

I checked in the power distribution box and the fuse was not blown but I replaced it anyway and I wasn't sure if the relay was bad so I went to a local ford dealer and got a new relay and put it in. Nothing happens when I try to trun on the fogs but my parking lights and headlights still work fine. Also, I put new fog light blubs in over the summer and had a spare ons and just checked to see if it was the bulb and it's not.

Any ideas why the fogs won't come on?

Stupid suggestion, but check and make sure your blinker assembly isn't pushed forward towards the dash. Pushing it towards the dash will turn on the brights and kill the fogs on the truck. I know I bump it w/my leg every once n a while, then hit the 'park' setting on the light switch, and the fogs won't come on.

my brights are off and still don't work. I even tried flashing my brights on then off to see if that did anything and they still don't come on.

Anybody have any other ideas on why the fogs are not coming on or a way to test them?

when you flash your bright lights, can you hear the relay clicking? Also, you might want to check the fog light switch itself for failure.

On a way to test them, unplug them and apply 12v to the light and it should come on.
