No low beams.

I had low beams one minute, went into a store,came out and they turned on for a couple seconds and both went out at the same time. All other lights are working, drove home with high beam Silstar Ultras on,made a few new unhappy friends. Any ideas before I start checking stuff in the morning, it's an 07 2nd gen. Do we have separate fuses for high/low beams ? Haven't made it to the manual yet to look, Thanks.

NO, nothing new,they just took a poop on the way home, headed out with a test light and see what we broke. Thanks for the help, will check that low beam fuse first.

Might have been some moisture,it's crappy out today and I just got done running a couple hundred miles in the slush on the Thruway. The fuses are fine, the high beams and parking lights are working, and when I just checked there is power to the drivers side low beam. I quit there,looks like the two Silstars may have just gave up the ghost at the same time.,never seen that before. Thanks for the help, try a couple bulbs in the morning and see what happens.

Sub'ed, let us know. I have had them go out together before, not at the exact moment, but the same point to point driving.
