Correct me if I am wrong but I think later fords do not have fuse protection for sidelights etc,they are controlled by the central junction box. Best bet would be to disconnect battery for 10 minutes and see if that resets the fault. If not then you will need to start going down the checking eart,belling cable from CJB to lights to check for breaks etc.

You say the bulbs are OK and you mention next to headlights? the side light bulbs are next to the fog lights not the headlights
