Fog Lights Stopped Working

I just noticed yesterday that my fog lights are not working. I can't think of a reason why since it is a 06 wrx (stock fog lights) and I doubt the bulbs burned out. When I press the button in for the fog lights that line lights up on the button but the for lights don't turn on. I did install a pair of Hella Horns two weeks ago but I am not sure if the horns have anything to do with the fog lights. Any ideas on what could have happened or where to start looking to find out whats wrong?

I haven't checked anything yet since I noticed this late last night. I was going to check the fuse as the first step but I just couldn't figure why it would of blown. Does the Horn and fog lights share the same fuse? Thats the only reason I could think of since I did that horn mod.

Not sure about that. But start small, hopefully its something as simple as the fuse and nothing big.

both bulbs could have gone at near the same time. Unless you check it religiously, it's quite possible you didn't notice the first was out and then the other one went. I'm still on my stock passenger fog light but I'm on my third driver's side fog light. They do die frequently...

Alright I'm going to do some inspecting when I get out of work. I really doubt they burnt out since I never use them, and both seem to go out at the same time. I'm hoping for a fuse.
