Default fog lights do not work?

driving home the other day i had run over a fox right there after i lost my fog lights ( as in they do not work ) the little indicator light on my dash dont even come on?? i've searched high and low across this site and google with out any luck. now its time to turn to the "pros"
upon visual inspection there is no broken lights/bulbs. no wires outta place and everything seems to be in workable condition but they just will not turn on??

i am going to "assume" that it aint the MFS because the lights worked, i hit the fox, and now they dont work

Is the mother of all screw ups!

Did you meter out the bulbs. Filament could be broken, sometimes hard to see.

Hmm, #8 fuse huh? My fogs don't work either and I did not hit a Fox! Although ours is used so maybe it did!

I just "assumed" it was the bulb, I'll start to check it out this weekend.

The #8 fuse is in the interior fuse box. If either of you have the 2006+ cruisers, there's no interior fuse box so forget that advice.

If it's missing you need to repair the mfs or buy one.

Yes, you would think so like the headlights, you can only have one out and the other would work.

The "fox" could have somehow hit the wiring harness and screwed up the wires, like grounding the hot wire. That would blow the fuse. Did you check yours?
