Check the fuses. If both low-beams went out at exact same time, it is probably the fuse (hopefully not a wiring short).
If they went out with a couple days or weeks of each other, it could just be the bulbs. They typically have very close lifespans and if they were installed at the same time, could burn out near the same time.
If the fuse is good, take the bulbs out. Look for a break in the filament.
Sometimes a fuse can break right at the base and you can't see it and sometimes a bulb can burn out without breaking the filament. If you can't see a break in either, start by replacing the fuse. (You can even take a same sized fuse out of a non-vital electronic (maybe radio, or power windows) and put it in the low beam spot.) If they work, there's the problem. Replace the missing fuse and your good. If not, then replace the bulbs.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 chevrolet cavalier and the high beam

Sounds like its a problem with the light switch handle. Had it myself as well...
If you're savvy enough around car electronics take out the light switch handle, take it apart, find the problem and fix it. Inside the handle-switch you have several slide-switches and some double action slide switches.
Otherwise - get a different switch from a local junkyard or get a new one from your dealer.
Good luck.

SOURCE: low beams dont work, only high beams do. 02 tacoma

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.

Make sure you use the right light because the high beams and low beams use different lights. I think the low beam is H4531 and the high is H4532.

Low beam not work !!


replace the headlight bulbs. Usually when the bulbs blow out the low beam blows out first, but the high beams still work. If you want and need both low and high beams to work then replace the headlight bulbs with brand new ones and I garauntee that both low and high beams will work
