Question about 1996 Toyota Tacoma
Running lights worked fine all day until tonight when i got in my truck, niether the running lights nor the low beams turn on. I switched to the high beams and they're the only ones that work. Emergency lights, tail lights work fine still and ive checked the fuses and no problems there. Lights are less than a year old, and low beam/high beam lights use hte same bulb so I dont believe its a problem with the bulbs or connection. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
If there is power there, then it has to be the bulbs. The trouble that most people have is, they don't see how both bulbs could burn out at once... and they're right. They don't. But you see vehicles with one headlight all the time. They don't know it unless you tell them or they happen to see it themselves. Then the second light burns out, and they think it's a major catastrophe, when in fact, it's just bulbs. The high beam still works because the bulb is double filament. The only other thing it can be is the dimmer switch, and since you switched it to high, it appears to be working. However, if it's not bulbs, it still could be the switch.

Also check the headlamp relay under the hood....had a couple cars blow that and make the headlights and running lights not work.
