    Are you certain both low beams went out at the same time ? Often, one bulb out is not noticed -- then the other one goes -- then it's noticed.

    I'd suggest running a continuity test on the bulb with a multi-meter.

    More info, let me know.

The wiring for the low beams would run not to the ignition, but to the dimmer switch. I don't know what color they are, but sounds like you are at the source of the problem, if the low beams quit when the column is let down. Pull the trim pieces off the steering column and examine the wires going to the dimmer switch. You may see some wiring insulation scraped off. It could be a bad dimmer switch, but check the wiring first.
Good luck.

My high beams won't turn off, even when my truck is not on. 05' Chevy Silverado 1500


The headlamps are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM) The first thing I would check for is the Headlamp Hi Relay. It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box. If pulling the relay out turns your high beams off, try taking out the low beam relay and putting it in the high beam position. If the headlamps stay off, try plugging the high beam relay into the low beam position. If the low beams now come on, the relay is shorted.

If none of this works, I would recommend scanning your BCM to see if there are any fault codes.

It is possible both low beams are out and you didn't notice until the second one failed. Have you tried to reset the lights with the dashboard switch?

No low beam all else ok 02 chevy 1500 5.3 which fuse is headlights low beam?


No low beam is not because a fuse has blown. There is just one fuse to cater to lights. In your case it is the dipper switch. Its dipped position is out and must be replaced.

Headlight problems


Hi. That sounds like the Low/high beam switch is malfunctioning and in need of replacement. I believe this because the headlights will not come on no matter which power source is attempting to activate them. Clearly, they are not getting power. Since the high-beam indicator light is functioning and indicating HIGH BEAM it IS getting power, There is no further interruptions in that circuit, save the fuse. IF the fuse is good,.. tested good.... Then the switch is bad, if the fuse is bad... replace it. If this doesn't solve the problem You have blown all your headlights simultaneously, or lost all the connectors to the headlights all at once, or possible got so unlucky as to lose all connectivity to just the headlights magically. I'd bet the fuse if I didn't believe that you would have checked that before posting the question here, and that doesn't account for the indicator to be stuck, so.... This pretty much leaves the switch ol buddy, sorry.
