Since the high beams work ok, I'd check the dimmer switch & wiring at the switch first. GM did use a headlight switch which had a circuit breaker incorporated within the switch. But if that was faulty, I'd think both high & low beams would be affected. HTH. Jim

No, I'd replace the dimmer switch (which you use to go from low to high beam) first. Since only your low beams are affected I don't believe it's the switch (push- pull) on the dash. -Jim
