Electrical Question...

Alright, the W115 is running great but weird issue. Randomly, the other day, one foglight was out. I couldn't find a replacement bulb, and a tiny bit of the old bulb end in still larged inside. Now when I turn on foglights, they short a fuse which also turns of right headlight, number 11. However, if I don't put on the fog lights, all fuses are ok, but the amber running lights do not turn on. Yet the blinker works..

Any thoughts?

Socket shorting to ground...get a pair of pliers and pull the bulb socket out.
Other fuses may need rolling in their holders...they get 'bad contact' syndrom.
