Check for a bad relay and that it had a proper ground.

Thank you, just for clarity do you mean the relay under the hood next to fuse/relay box?

Yes, the one for the fog lights, if it's going bad or has a bad ground may explain why fog lights won't come back on after initial use. If you have a similar rated relay in power dist. box, swap em and see how fog lights behave after that.

Thank you for your help. The issue turned out to be, the high beam leg and ground leg were swapped.
