Question 2008 Civic EX Coupe Fog Light Problem

Hi everyone -
I have a problem with my fog lights. I had an OEM kit installed aftermarket by a mechanic, and he says that he did everything correctly, but the fog lights will not turn on. When I push the fog light button, the fog light indicator does light up on my dashboard. He is stumped and says that I might have a bad control board (which I don't think is the problem) but I'm looking for some ideas on how to troubleshoot this before I lose my mind, and a lot of money. Any ideas of what could be wrong? Thanks!

does the mechanic not know how to test for power and ground?
get a circuit diagram and start testing.
should be the switch, a relay, and the lights

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Do you need the installation instructions so you might figure out where your mechanic went wrong?
