Sounds like a bad ground. Using a test light, figure out which of the wires going to the bulb is a ground and try re-grounding each bulb. If that fixes it, chase the wire and see if you can find the break. There may also be something else drawing on that line as well. Be careful with this because you could blow the bulb or do some harm if there is some thing also drawing juice. Be prepared to unhook the test ground. If you have daytime running lights, see if that's still pulling on the power when you switch to regular lighting. Hint: daytime running lights go off when the parking brake is applied.

No low beam lights but have high beam lights


check the light globe as a lot of cars have two filaments in the halogen globe. One for low beam and one high beam filament.
You could get a 12v probe and then pull of the light plug and see if low beam bul is getting 12 volts when lights on low beam.

Low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do


Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.
