Your relays are or should be in the engine compartment under a plastic box or under the dash board on the driver's side or on the side of the dash board on drivers side.

No low beams on 2013 Silcxerado. Fuses good, relays swapped around with no effect.


Maybe a problem with dimmer switch? You have lo beam fuses and low beam relay in under hood fuse box, use a test light, check for voltage at the lo beam fuses with lo beams turned on. I wouldn't think both right and left lo beam fuses would blow at the same time.
The bcm grounds the lo beam relay. The dimmer switch lets the bcm know what's going on, so the bcm will ground the lo beam relay.
I can only help with testing. I looked at info for Silverado.

Where to hook up power wire for aftermarket driving lights in 93 Nissan Maxima


if you hook the driving lights to the low beam circuit you will be in breach of traffic regulations the regulation reads that driving lights can only be operated with high beams and on selection of low beam , the lights have to go out
added to that is the clause --the driving lights most be extinguishable when on high beam by the use of a separate isolation switch
now the circuit is really simple
you place a relay for each driving light in a suitable place
you run a fused wire from the battery to the relay and then to each light
to make those relays work you connect a wire from the existing high beam relays connections(m piggy back or like connection) so that when on high beam the trigger power that puts the headlights on also triggers the driving light relays
Now to meet regulations you run ground wires for the driving lights back to a switch in the cabin then to ground

High/low beam


it very possible it could be in the switch itself but check the relay first which is usually located under the hood in the relay box

05 Jeep Wrangler High Beams Work, Low Beams dont


There are no relays for the headlights. Your problem could be from the headlight switch. You would have to check and see if you have power coming out of the switch on the low beam side. Check with a test light.

most likelly you shoul have a universal 5 or 4 leg relay type if you do conect the number 30 straight to a batterie power with an online fuse, then the #87 to the driving lights circuit, then the #86 to straight ground, then the #85 to the low beam circuit, and the leg or contact in the center of relay leave it along dont use it, since that one will be constant power even with everithing off
