Have you checked fuse,s?


Also check out the smart switch that controls the the high beam low beam. Bang it with your fist on the bottom. See if that gets them to turn on. And as unlikely as it is, make sure that both of the low beams aren't burnt out.


Yikes! I don't know about fist banging. It sounds like the dimmer is bad.


Yeah. Fist banging comes in handy on my 20 year old Kia Sportage.
