Try swapping #45 cooling fan relay and #46 HDM (headlight driver module) relay in the underhood fuse block. These are solid state modules and are not like conventional relays.

The problem is the headlight switch itself - it's one of the most common failures on these cars. The part, brand-new, is about $158 from ECSTuning.com. Replacing it involves removing the airbag and steering wheel - not difficult but a little nerve-wracking due to the power of the airbag.
If this is something you want to tackle on your own, reply back here and I can give you a step-by-step on doing the work yourself. Or you can go to a shop/dealer and just have them do it. They'll probably charge you at least two hours' labor, even though it's a 40 minute job. Let me know what you would like to do.

There are two filiments in each headlamp; one for low beams, and the other for high beams. It is possible that the both right and left low beam filiments burned out at nearly the same time. Otherwise, there may be a fuse, or headlight relay that is causing the problem. If all these check out good, it may be your headlight switch needs to be replaced.
