    Are they any good? Do you have anything to test the power going to low side? Single lamp or dual lamps? (one on each side or two on each side)

    Replace your low beam bulbs. They're burned out. :doah:The low beams have dual filaments. One for low beam and one for high beam. The low beam filaments are wasted... :(

    Only 3 things it could be. Low beam headlights shot, or no power to low beams, which could be either a wiring issue or your dimmer switch is shot.
