Default MY98 2.5RS Foglights died

well i took my car out of the garage and then i turned on my headlights and foglights and looks normal until i reached wal-mart and then i had the car on and i was messing with the lights until i notice only one side of the car is yellow and then i pressed on and off the foglight button and i notice that only the left side(from inside the car) is yellow then i got out and looked at the foglight on the right and it was dead, i tried hitting it to see if it would come back on, it wouldn't and then i tried unpluging the wires and it didn't come back on, i checked the relay i didn't do much cause it was dark so yeah, could it be wires, bulb, relay? the foglight on the right has a little hole in it due to previous owner taking it rally <_<

I was going to reply using the same writing style, but it hurt so much to try and read that I deleted it and started over. Good lord man, there's a "." button on the keyboard for a reason.

Anyway, I'm guessing the bulb burned out or is just broken at the very least. If you have a voltmeter, disconnect the wires at the light, turn the switch on and check for +12v at the connection coming from the relay. Then, check the continuity of the bulb if you have that capability on the multimeter. At the very least, take the bulb out and check the bulb to see if it is broken or not.

So, check for +12v with the lights on at the foglight connection coming from the relay and then check the status of the bulb. With one working and the other not, I'm leaning towards the bulb being broken.
