If you haven't already, check the bulbs. Check the bulb sockets for corrosion. Check the fuses and relays for both sides. Check for damaged wiring. It could also be the interior switch.

The dimmer switch on the stalk usually operates a relay in the fuse box.
It could be the dimmer switch, relay, lowbeam fuse, or odd coincidence both lowbeam filaments went out.
Use a test light and work backwards.

SOURCE: headlight low beam

Test to see if you have voltage at the bulb connector in low beam position. I'd almost bet that if there is no voltage there for the low beams that you have a bad high/low switch.

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

Low beam headlight is out, doesn't look like a fuse


Check the Headlight Switch. If your headlights come on automatically check the headlight sensor and its associated relay.
