Default headlight and fog light problem

The headlight and fog light on passenger side both quit working.
Have checked fuses for them, have also just replaced shunt as both headlights had recently quit working.
any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

You checked both sets of fuses?
There is one in the fuse box in the dash and one under the hood in the fuse box.

no power to lights.
is there a relay that i could check other than the shunt and fuses?
also why would 1 fog and 1 headlight work and not the other?

That is a strange one with the foglight.
There is a relay but I have to find the exact location. There was also another post with the same headlight issue that had diagrams in the post.
