1. check the fuse.
2. check the switch
3. start tracing to see how far you have power in the circuit.

Wally world carries fuses. Just find the fuse in your wiring and pull it out, carry it into a parts store and they'll help you find it. Post some pics sometime...lol. I love them oxford whites

if its not your fuse its likely your switch, we rarely get mustangs in the shop, but when they come in its either for noisy windows, clashing transmissions (manuals) or fog lights inop - and 9 times out of 10 its the switch causing the problem

you can test the wires by using a little power tester to see if they wires are hot, which i bet you are not.

Yeah not bad of an idea. I should start checking out my work in mods once in a while, not just checking oil and water.
