Yes there is. There is a high beam and low beam fuse for each headlamp. These fuses are located in the underhood fusebox. There is a diagram on the bottom of the cover that will help you find the fuse in question. Good Luck

My passenger side low beam headlight recently went off on me. ... I've changed the bulb again, and changed the fuse just in case, but .... My driver side headlight wire got loose so when i hit a bump at night if would flicker. ... When you notice one side not working (Low or High beam) it could be the module.

On a 2008 Prius, If both High beams work but only one side has working low beams, then it is most likely a fuse. So before breaking your knuckles to change the bulb, check the fuse first. I found out the hard way as my mom distressed to me that her drivers side headlights were out. So without checking to see if low and high were working, I proceeded to remove and replace the bulb - ouch! There are 4 10 amp fuses that protect the circuits for low/high beam function. They are under the hood in the fuse box on the drivers side and they are marked on the box cover. Check them before changing the bulb.
The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.
When you turn on your head lamp do you notice that you also have rear tail lights that are lit up as well? I have noticed on some occasion, both front headlamp assemblies could possibly be blown at the same time. One of the most important tools for checking to see if you have power on the low and high beam circuit will be a automotive test lamp, you can purchase these at most auto parts stores.
the high beam switch is at fault A new one is needed The directional lever you pull up on to switch to high and low connects to a rod which is going to the high beam switch at the mid section of the steering coluum. It is a headache to change for your on your head replacing this part
Either both bulbs are bad(I've seen it before) or your
dimmer/headlight switch is bad. If you can without pulling the bulb, pull plug from the light. If it's a 4 lamp system pull the low beam. Do this on the left side as the right feeds from the left. With a 12v test light, check for power. (with lo beam on) if you have
power, change the lamp, if you don't it's most likly
the dimmer switch at the steering collum.
Hope this helps Good luck
this strongly sounds like a body control module(bcm). everything is controlled through computer systems, this just happens to be one of the units that controls headlamp operation. prior to replacement of an expensive component, check your power distribution box under the hood on the drivers side. it is aslo possible to have a loose connection under the fuse or relay. check these items first. cheers
You know the fuse for the high beams is good ( Cab fuse panel fuse # 16 ) and the pass low beam fuse ( cab fuse panel # 26 ). Might want to check cab fuse panel fuse #28 ( this is the driver's side low beam ).
If this fuse has power on both sides ( with the low beams on ) next you can pull the headlamps, and check for power at the connectors, but depending when the last bulb change took place, I would say you need need bulbs. ( need at least 1 for the high beam out ) Confirming with a meter at the headlamp would be a good idea, before spending the money.
The bulb connector has 3 pins. Black wire is ground on both sides Light Green w/ Black stripe wire is high beams on both sides Driver Lo = Dark Blue w/ white stripe Pass Lo = Dark Green w/ Orange stripe.
