My low beam headlights quit working. I checked all of the fuses. They are good. What are my next steps?

    Did you check the bulbs themselves to make sure they're good? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jan 14 '16 at 23:22
  • Bulbs, wiring/contact, relays – I have no idea what I'm doing Jan 15 '16 at 10:41
  • No haven't yet, but I'll try to check them. Would they burn out at the same time? Tks for you input! – Becky Jan 15 '16 at 23:01
  • Had the bulbs checked and the were good, I'm going to try the relay next. – Becky Jan 22 '16 at 1:50

If both low beams stop working at the same time, there are a few things to check:

  • Are the bulbs still good, it's not unheard of for both to fail at the same time, or close to each other.

  • Are the fuses and relays working correctly.

  • Is the switch working correctly - quite a few cars are known for having weak headlight switches that either wear out or burn out the contacts over time, although this is more prevalent in older cars with un-relayed headlamps.

  • Is the wiring all good - are there any loose connections, damaged wires or badly corroded earth points.
