Did you have a relay for the hids? I'm not sure if you need it or not but my dad had hid fogs and they kept going out. Put a relay in and now they work perfectly.

The only thing I can think of since both fogs are off is either a blow relay/fuse.

Buy a multimeter or at the very least, a test probe (looks like a screwdriver with a wire at one end, and a built in 12 volt light). These can be had for a few dollars at any auto parts store. You clip the probes wire to ground, then use it's tip to check each point of the wiring; if the light glows, you have power.
In your case, you'd start at the fuse point to see if there's power at the fuse; at one point of the fuse socket, there'd be power, and the probe would lite. If the fuse is blown, the other side would not lite the probe. For a relay, you'd need to know how a relay works: one point of the relay is the incoming power source, one point is ground, one source is the "trigger power" (such as a light switch) that energizes the relay, and one point is power out to the fogs.

You should however be able to "see" if a fuse is blown, unless you are using some sort of non stock fuse....

There are two relays under the hood for the fog lights. One controls the foglights (relay position 3 I believe) and the other is the relay to turn your foglights off when you switch your high beams on (relay position 1) if either of these are bad, then your fogs wont work. I definitely agree with putting a multimeter to them to see if theyre bad or not. Refer to your owners manual in the roadside emergencies section just to confirm the relay positions.
