Default 06 GX470 Front Lights out & Fogs

All of a sudden the front left lights and both fog lights stopped working.
It must be a fuse or a loose connection.

Has anyone had this before, do you know how to fix?

Thanks,

Firstly prior to working on Fuse areas, have the (-)battery terminal disconnected.
There are two locations to work on to have the fuse checked, The headlamp fuses are having two types, One is the Cartridge type located in the Driver Side Junction Box area and the Blade type located in the Engine Bay. The Attached photos are quite simple understandable and you could begin trouble shooting the areas marked. In the Engine Bay area you would come across a relay which one of the snaps attached are earmarked, this could be only tested with the voltmeter, or get to Autozone and use the DTC tool to check its functionality. The fuses need to be checked whether they are shorted, You could refer to the Owner manual Pg 601 for reference as to how to know whether they are shorted or blown. Always ensure all fuses to be replaced with the exact amp mentioned on the top of the fuse. Do not exceed, this could lead to further complication. To pull the fuse out of the Fuse box there is a white tool clip to pull these out. Hope yr problems are with fuses only. Cheers & goodluck

I forgot to mention the Driver side Junction box looks quite deceptive. here is the image.

The only care you need to take is the Fuse Cover Clips in the Engine bay, they are too soft, so try giving a slight pressure, otherwise you end having them broken,if they begin to break, no problem the part numbers are
#90467-06155 ( Qty 04). Two are Push button type and two are lock nut type

Also to add further, to identity of the type of fuse one more method is once you pop out the Engine Bay Fuse Box which have have three clips clasping it, Once removed, flip to the reverse inner side of the Plastic Fuse cover and they have got the indication of the fuse type and related amperes. Here is the image.
