Default fogs

I shorted out my fog lights , trying to fix one that wasnt working now the light on the switch doesnt come on and neither work so I am assuming it is a fuse.The fuse is one of those grey square ones (relay I guess) also I think daytime running lights went out it is beside foglight relay.Do I just need to replace these or could it have blown something else.Dont know how to tell if relay is no good , by looks it is fine.

The schematic shows a 15 amp fuse in the underhood fuse block that feeds the fog and daytime running lights. May want to check there.

Well thanks Archon your gettin real good at making me look stupid,and I love it, I did not even see that one I was looking at the micro relay that said fog lamps.What would that be for.Also I am missing a micro relay for HVAC SOLONOID do you know why this would be missing and could it be the cause of my a/c woes (not getting cold air) thanks again Archon .
I feel like you should call me grasshopper, and I should call you master hahahahhahah

Overlooking something, or becoming focused on one area is rather common. That'* why there are people like proof readers, and others who check someone else work. A third party doesn't make the same assumptions. So, it'* not stupidity...it'* human nature....grasshopper.

The fog light switch isn't designed to handle the current for the lamps, it just provides for the switching for the relay which handles the higher current.

I double checked on my car, and I do not have that relay either. Must be for another application or vehicle. I don't see anything in the schematics for that solenoid. Just off the top of my head, I'd say you probably have an actuator problem. The only reason for that is because it'* a rather common failure. More trouble-shooting would be needed to confirm that.
