Question about 1993 Chevrolet K1500
My low beams just stopped working. Is there or could it be a fuse for them that may have burnt out? My high beams work fine.
Check the bulbs first because on most cars the low beam bulbs blow out first and yes check the fuses under the drivers side dash and also the relay box under the hood if owners manual check there also to find where everything is located also if you have any after market CD player or amps check the grounds and connections on these also

Headlight's are not fused, there is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch, pull the head light switch out and look for a burnt discolored connector and discolored terminals on the switch, if u find either or both replace the headlight switch and the connector, headlight switch connectors are avail in the aftermarket through full service parts stores like NAPA, also on the internet under automotive electrical repair connectors, if the headlight switch checks ok and has power in to it and out to low beams then replace the multifunction switch opn the steering column.

had the same problem on my 92....check under the hood on the drivers side,towards the front,there is a "junction box" with all of the lighting wires connecting from the switches to the lights.My wires were all corroded inside,so I cleaned the ends and bought a new box from the local electronic supply store.The problem has not come back.

You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.
I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse
