Does the amber light on the fog light switch come on when you switch it on?

Its gotta be a wiring thing...or corrosion, my fogs on my 89 wouldn't work and it was due to corroded wires. Might be worth a check to see how the conditions of the wires are

I would check for 12V+ at the lights first. If no power, my next guess would be one of the two relays that control its operation.

Try removing the black fuse panel under the hood at the back of the engine (just in front of the windshield) and check the big fuses.
I had that happen to my 1992 and that'* what was wrong with mine. Cost all of about $1.50 ( I got the fuse out of a junker in the salvage yard for free) and take about 1 minute to change.
Good luck and let us know how if that fixes it.
