Someone may have ran the wiring from the fog lights on the same circuit that the headlights are on and therefore it is taking some voltage away from the headlights, might need to run the fog lights on a different circuit with a fusable link in it for safety.
I'm just now seeing your question at 3pm est so I don't know when you first posted it. Your car has several different wiring systems for the lights so you may have to get a book to figure it all out. There is a fog light relay, but it has nothing to do with the rest of the lights, unless your car also has an isolation relay. The isolation relay grounds the fog lamp relay on some models. There may also be an instrument cluster microprocessor if the car has automatic light controls or daytime running lights. Its possible you popped something in the headlight switch too. I would get a book with the diagrams and start at the fog lamp and dash light fuses then go from there. See if the fuses have voltage first. Some of the diagrams can be found online, such as at autozone's website under repair help.
You only need to get the components you don't already have. The headlight switch that is fog enabled will pull out for fog light operation, if yous doesn't you need to replace the switch and do some wiring as shown in the pdf file linked above.
Remove the fog lamp-to-bumper assembly retaining screws. Be careful not to disturb the adjusting screw.

Squeeze the bulb and socket assembly retaining clip prongs inward, and pull the bulb and socket from the rear of the fog lamp.

Unplug the fog lamp electrical connector.

Install the assembly, retaining bolts and connect the negative battery cable.
Park the car on a level surface, at least 25 ft. (7.6m) from a wall that is perpendicular to the ground surface. Make sure there is no excess weight in the trunk, unless you normally travel with that amount of weight in the car. Bounce the car a few times to settle the suspension.
Measure and record the distance from the ground to the center of each fog light lens.
Turn the fog lights on and adjust so the hot-spots (lit area of most concentrated intensity) are 4 in. (10cm) below the height of the lenses. The ADJUSTING screw is located at the top right corner of the fog light.
Fog lamps are installed on the front bumper. The switch is located
to the left of the steering column on the dash panel. The fog lamps are
turned off by the circuit relay when the high beam driving lamps are
turned on. The circuit relay is located on the right front wheelhouse
panel near the blower motor.
Good luck, and remember rated this help.
Removal & InstallationFog Lamp Element See Figure 1
Fig. 1: Exploded view of a fog lamp assembly
Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
Remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Remove the element from the bulb.
DO NOT handle elements with your bare hands, always handle with a
clean cloth. Oil from your hands will cause the element to fail.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
Fog Lamp Switch The fog lamp switch is removed and
installed by simply prying the switch from the instrument panel and
unplugging the electrical connector.
FOGLAMP BEAM ADJUSTMENT
Position the vehicle on a level surface, facing a wall
approximately 25 feet away. Remove the lamp stone shields and loosen
the adjustment nuts.
Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
Height of the light beams on the wall should be 4 inches less than the center of the lamp assemblies when mounted on the bumper.
Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.
If you bought the fog lights from Ford and they plugged into factory plugs at the front bumper, then I suspect you need the headlight switch that came optional for your car. You will need to install a relay into the fuse box. Check for any fuses for that circuit. I did one on a Ford f-150 and the switch came with the lights from Ford.Usually the fog lights are not on until you push a button or turn the switch.
Yes you can have fog lights. You will need to buy the Haynes Manual and it will show you where to attach the wires underneath the harness under the hood. The easist way to do this is the biggy back the fog lights onto the main running lights circuit. NOT THE HEAD LIGHTS CIRCUIT. That way when you turn on the running lights the fog lights come on automatically and the fuse is strong enough to power both, and you could bump up the fuse about 10-15amps, but no more.
