Default Fog Lamps dont light on..

Yesterday fell down a strong rain in my city and i was driving and there was a lot of water in the streets. Today i noticed the fog lamps doesnt working anymore. So, i checked the lights and both bulbs was broken. So, i changed with new ones and doesnt work. I checked the RELAY 1 and RELAY 5 and both are OK. The Fog Lamp Switch are lighting on and off then i press it. What could be the problem?

Did the new bulbs just blow when you put them in? Check the new bulbs to make sure they are still good, if you had water in the lenses they might have blown before you could even see if they were on.

You must live in TX! Seems like the state if flooded. TimeforMiller had a good point. Check to see if your connection is good. No water. Also, are the fuses good?

Well. the connectors appear to be ok! theresnt water anymore. I check two Relays and One fuse on tme Main Distribution Fuse box under the hood. The manuall say the fog lamps are controlled bu the Relay 1 and Relay 5, and a Maxi 20A fuse. All are ok!

If you checked all that, then it has to be something simple like:

Are you touching the glass on the buld when you take it out of the package?
Are you attaching the connecters securely?
Is there even prongs left in the connector or did they fall out when you first pulled them apart?
What are theother fuses that cover the foglights?
Did you check the fuses for the foglight switch itself?

The Bulbs are ok because i checked directly to the battery and they light on. I think im doing well the connection to the fog lamps connectors.
I dont know if theres more fuses related to fog lamps. In the manual only say 2 relays and 1 Maxi fuse. I dont know if theres a fuse on the fog lamp switch.
