foglights not working

Back story: 2001 330I purchased about 2 yrs ago. Just never had much time to into why they weren't working.

Checked bulbs and they are both good.
Fuse is good, number 38 if not mistaken.
Replaced foglight relay under dash behind fuse box.
Performed cluster check, all lights good.

Still no functioning fog lights, nothing happens when I push fog light button. Dashboard light does not turn on nor do fog lights.

Any ideas on what might be the culprit? I have not pulled the bumper to check connections but im hoping there's something I might have missed or can do before taking that step.

Pull out a multimeter and check if the fog socket gets voltage. And do you have the parklight or headlight on when turning on the fogs?
