|Could be a lot of stuff but since low beams usually are used more and burn out first--take out a bulb and test it. IIRC the top center contact is common positive on the car, and each 'side' tab is one beam. The headlight switching grounds each side tab to turn on each (low/high) beam.|
If it isn't the bulb you've got lots more tracing to do. Could be a corroded socket, could be internal to the headlight switch, the stalk on the steering wheel...AFAIK the high and low beams use the same fuse/breaker so that wouldn't matter.
I'm still having the same issue; high beams work, low beams don't.
I have taken apart the turn signal/high beam stalk on the steering column. Everything seems to be fine there.
At the head light, with the low beams on, all three tabs have power. When the high beams are switched on, only two tabs have power.
Also, what is a good way to clean the connectors at the headlights, because they are filthy.
