check the headlight relay for the low beams could be bad, change it with one that is the same from the relay/fuse panel to see if it works and if it does then go get a new relay if not follow to make sure there is power and ground to operate the relay and make sure there is power coming into the relay that is supposed to be switched good luck

As the history probably has nothing to with the problem, make sure all relays and fuses are good... But chances are the problem is most likely as simple as a faulty headlamp switch...
