    Do you mean the wire running from the car's loom into the foglight assembly or the wire from the bulb itself inside the light? Any chance of a photo?

          A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say

          In the absence of that and assuming standard GTE fogs, I can only guess that one of two things has happened. From memory - and it's years and years since I've changed a front fog bulb of any description, it very rarely is foggy enough to use them - they have an H3 bulb plugged into a standalone spade connector on the end of the loom inside the foglamp unit. So if it's the bulb to loom wire, either it's become disconnected from this spade connector, which may have dropped down inside the foglamp housing. You may be able to find it and fish it out with one finger.

          Or, the other option is that the small section of wire which always comes supplied with an H3 has broken off of the back of the bulb. In which case, you need a new bulb...
