    Does the light come on on the dash when you switch on the fogs.
    Try unplugging the relay from the base and briefly shorting across pins 30 and 87 on the base with a piece of wire and see if the fogs come on.

    where is the loud buzzing coming from with the ignition on? Is it from a relay in the fusebox

    dont think so,i cant work it out.sounds like down near middle of engine.. to check if its the main light switch,on the right side of the dash,take it out and cross the wires the dial that has your side lights and full lights? i just checked where the buzzing is from and its here in this pic,it vibrates too..

    Your fogs must be protected by a fuse (all diagrams show that as 15). You'll have to find out what one it is. The wire that comes from the relay to the fuse should be red/yellow if you can manage to see it.

    What relay are you testing? Is it the one in this diagram?
