check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car
if your vehicle has H4 headlight bulbs fitted you will find that they have both high & low beam filaments in them,what has most likely happened is that the low beam filaments are blown & the bulbs need to be replaced, also you may find that high & low beam circuits are on separate fuses, & also the front markers may have there own fuse check the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.
Check the fuses. If both low-beams went out at exact same time, it is probably the fuse (hopefully not a wiring short).
If they went out with a couple days or weeks of each other, it could just be the bulbs. They typically have very close lifespans and if they were installed at the same time, could burn out near the same time.
If the fuse is good, take the bulbs out. Look for a break in the filament.
Sometimes a fuse can break right at the base and you can't see it and sometimes a bulb can burn out without breaking the filament. If you can't see a break in either, start by replacing the fuse. (You can even take a same sized fuse out of a non-vital electronic (maybe radio, or power windows) and put it in the low beam spot.) If they work, there's the problem. Replace the missing fuse and your good. If not, then replace the bulbs.
if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals
Well I would certainly check the fuse because that both lights burned out. If only one had burned out I would replace the bulb. If the fuse is good I would purchase 1 bulb and see if the new bulb works. Often times people will replace both bulbs because they come in 2 packs cheaper than singles. This also can cause both to burn out at the same time. Check the fuse and then replace a light, if replacing one light works replace the other, this should cure the problem.
I don't know if it will be very helpful (maybe not if both low beams went at the same time), but the fuses for your low beams are in your under hood fuse box: fuse number 1 (10A) left headlight low, and fuse number 6 (10A) right headlight low. Maybe it's not likely that they would both go at once, but I would check them.
Then, of course, it could be the bulbs.
Last, if not one of the former, then it becomes a matter of having relays and switches checked (not something you really want to do yourself).
Hope this is helpful.
That is great that you checked the fuses; that is one thing people usually think of last. The low beam bulb could be different from the high beam bulb and may need replacing. Go to an Advance Auto store or some such place and have them help you purchase the bulb you need.
