If someone had higher watt bulbs in the lights, or they were hanging open in a 5.0 LX, it’s possible. If you are sure the wiring and plug is good on the light end, I’d be considering a more universal weather resistant replacement connector pair for both sides. Be sure to skip on shrink tube, solder, then shrink the shrink tube over the solders.
Thats where I was heading once this rain lets up. Trying like hell to keep factory connectors but I guess you can only fix so much of someone else’s screw ups.

The spades on the fog light arent long enough to make contact. Break a fuse and used the blades to tuck inside the plugs.

One plug ended up being cracked on the light side so I cut it and used spade connectors temporarily. Other side needed the slots bent shut a bit to make contact. All seems to work now but your right, they blades aren’t long enough

The fog lights will cause a problem if you don't correct them like Ford did in a TSB.
