Both Low Beams out on my 2000 VW Cabrio. Where is fuse box?

I turned my car on and discovered both low beams out on my 2000 VW Cabrio. Since they went out at the same time, and all else works fine, I'm thinking it might be a bad fuse. But there is no fuse for the low beams in the fuse panel box left to the driver's wheel, unless it is labeled something else. Also no info in the owner's manual.

ANy help would be appreciated.

ONE WAS MOST LIKELY OUT 1ST AND DIDN'T NOTICE IT. TRY A NEW ONE, IF IT WORKS THEN BUY ANOTHER.

SAME CAR, NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT IT MIGHT BE A FUSE. A LOW BEAM FUSE FOR JUST LOW BEAMS, NEVER FOUND.

My low beams do not work. If I put on the high beams both the low and high beams are on.


Both highs and lows coming on when flipping to highs is normal. (You low beams are dual filament) Now low beam issue is either "lo beam fuse" in your fuse box or dimmer switch (switch used to flip between high/low beams. Check your fuses first, it their good then you need a new dimmer switch.

Headlights went out. Replaced bulbs and switch and still lights don't work. Fog lights and high beams work? What else can work?


If high beams work and low beams do not, then it is probably the high/low relay. It is part number 15016745 and has four prongs. To test if your relay has gone bad locate the relay in your fuse box. There will be two of these relays located next to each other. One controls the low beam headlights and the other the cooling fan. Swap the relays and check your low beam headlights. If the low beams work you have a bad relay.

Low beams quit, high beams ok.


You have a separate fuse for the high beams and the low beams. Fuses are located in panel in driver's side of dash concealed when door is closed, or in the power distribution box under the hood on the driver's side. You have separate lamps for each (not likely since they both went out together).
The worst thing it could be, and it is very expensive for parts/labor (and you don't want to tackle this one yourself unless you are a good mechanic) is the column-mounted dimmer/cruise/wiper/washer/turn signal switch. The part alone is almost 200 bucks, and installing it requires dismantling the steering column inside the SUV.
Hope it's not that.

No low beams.


To start ensure that it is not just a blown fuse. If that is not the problem, then you need to read voltages at the back of fuse box, to check if there is volts on wiring from fuse out to light when switch is on. If there is no power you localize the problem on wiring from light switch to fuse box. In this case you may need to take apart the steering column to repair wiring harness (switch has already been replaced).
If instead there is power getting to light fuse, and power out from fuse box to light, then test and repair the wiring to lights from fuse box, if you do not find the problem you may need a rebuild. This can be done by a mechanic or by a car electrician.

Head lights not working


check your relays, they are like big fuses in your engine compartment, if your low beam and high beam relays are the same model, switch them and see if this enables low beams and disables the high beams. if it not the relays, or fuses, then it is probably your wiring harness, an expensive repair.
