    Has anyone lost both low beams at the same time? I turned the truck off with both low beams on and working fine. After restart both do not work, all other light work correctly. Drove home with high beams. Thanks for any help.

    They could have just burned out... kinda bizare they'd both go out at exactly the same time but not impossible. Other than that, there could have been some kind of surge to blow out the low beam, or you have a loose connection or such for your lows.

    Did you check the fuses? Seems strange to lose both low beams at the same time.

    Thanks for the reminder to check the simple stuff first (fuses).

    it could also be the relays they are in the main fuse box under the hood

    Fuses are good. High beams/running lights work fine. Do high and low beams use seperate relays and or is there a seprate control? I have not checked the lights themself yet (as it is actually raining in So Cal.) and I find it hard to believe both would go out at the same exact time. Both worked fine when I left the TACO and neither worked when I returned in about an hour. Also both were replaced about three months ago. Thanks again for any help or info.

    there are separate relays for high and low a quik check would be to take the high beam relay and plug it into the low beam spot
