    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 mud flaps, plasti dipped emblems, and rear bumper, Weather tech digital fit, Bed mat from tractor supply. Pioneer 4400BH head unit. B.A.M.F bed rail tie downs. AVS vent visors.
    my guess is it’s the low beam element on the bulbs them self. or maybe a low beam fuse?

    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.

    Update : bought two of the cheapest Sylvanias I could find and installed them. Headlights are working perfect for now, have no idea what happened,hopefully the electrical Gremlins are done with me for a while. Thanks for all the help and advice.
