Exclamation Fog Light issues

One of my low beams burnt out, so I replaced it. The next day the other low burnt out. I replace it and notice that my fog lights dont turn on. When I press the fog button, the green light on the left of my dash does not light up...not sure whats up, maybe a fuse?

Use a voltmeter. See if you have any juice running through the circuit at first, then verify that it is the proper ammount. As already mentioned check the fuse.

more then likely a short somewhere, your fogs are out probably because your high beam bulbs are blown, rarely will a fuse fail in that circuit, check the high beams, my bet is thats where the problem is. let me know.
