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.

This is a common problem on 97-00 MY trucks, regardless of the trim level ( XL, XLT, Lariat ).
If you install the fog lamp fuse in the BJB ( aka Battery Junction Box, Engine Compartment fuse panel ) Fuse # 9 ( 15 A fuse ) and jumper the normally open contacts in the fog lamp relay socket ( see diagram below ) the fog lamps should illuminate ( to confirm what you have doing on ).
The problem usually is the main headlamp switch to the BJB is not in place ( this is the yellow wire from the main headlamp switch connector to the relay socket pin #1 ).
One easy route is to make an aux lighting relay & harness, or purchase one online. With this, you can cut the factory ends and attach them to the harness you purchased. There is an air inlet next to where the steering wheel column runs through the firewall. This would give you an easy route to the fog lamp switch. The fog lamp switch, you can buy the factory one, and change the yellow wire from the connector to your added relay, or just add a switch for this function.
This will give you an idea of what the DIY relay and harness would look like.
Hope this helps, more than confuses at this point

There is a "power distribution box" located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, On top of the wheel well towards the rear off the engine compartment by the brake master cylinder. It's black and there is a cover over top of the fuses and relays in there. Just look at the instructions printed on the cover on how to remove the cover. The fuse I think you are looking for is in the # 16 position. As you look from the top on the inside of the box from the drivers side (The box will be long ways) it will be the 8th one over from the right in the second row. It will be a blue 15 amp fuse. That fuse is the one for your headlamp and foglamp switches. You may have other problems as there is a reason why the fuse would have blown in the first place if the fuse is blown. I hope you understand the location of where it is and I hope this helped and good luck.
