fog lights not working?

About a month ago the ranger took a spill into a snow bank and recieved some passenger side damage. It ended up ripping the fog light bulb out (still connected to socket, but bulb was MIA). So I finally got around to replacing the bulbs this past weekend and come to find out neither fog light will light up, and the indicator in the cab doesn't light up either. Checked the manual to see if there's a fuse and couldn't come up with anything pointing to a fog light fuse (found headlamps, but those are still working). Any ideas on where to go on this and where to check next. I figure I should get under the truck and follow the wiring back to see if there's breaks in the wire or something like that but figured I'd check here to see what else you guys could come up with to check.

Thanks

Your 05 may differ from my 01, but here's what I found.

There's nothing listed in the panel that's in the truck (mine being in the dash on the drivers side, yours being on the passenger side kick panel.

Look in the power distribution box under the hood.

#31 - 20A fuse - Foglamps, DRL
#48A - Foglamp Relay
#48B - Foglamp Relay

Chances are your fuse is blown. The relays are cheap to replace if they are shot too.
Hope this helps.

Yes, 2004~2006 is different.

Fuse 23 in SJB (PS kick panel)
Fuse 31 in SJB
There are no serviceable foglamp relays for these years.

Maybe for some reason your switch is bad. Bob is the man though, he'll get you in the right direction.
