Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have multiple problems going on at the same time. the fog lamp wouldn't be affected by unplugging the headlamp bulb.

You could have a blown headlamp bulb, a connection issue, a module or wiring problem. If unplugging the bulb truly allowed it to work again then odds are there is a connection or wiring issue that was disturbed.

Has the bulb been replaced?
