    Both headlights out. Bulbs are fine.

    My headlights worked last night but tonight when i turned them on tonight they didnt come on. Brights work, turn signals work, flood lights work. Checked the 15amp fuses and they were fine. Any ideas?

    What kind of bulbs are in there? Could have burnt up wiring, check the relay for it as well.

    How are the bulbs "fine?" Did you test the low beam bulbs? I've had what you describe happen with a short in one bulb. I'd pull the bulbs and test them or at least leave them in place, remove the harness, and test the bulbs across the terminals with a multimeter. If I am wrong, you've wasted 5 minutes only (sorry...).

    If I remember right, the relays for the head lights are in the engine bay fuse box, the two nearest to the firewall at the top of the box, should be right next to each other. One is for left hand, the other for right hand.

    Well, if there is a seperate relay for each light and both of them are out then that's probably not the problem.

    Not necessarily, but in a way correct. If both of them are out, it will mean there is an underlying problem that needs to be searched out, but checking the relays is a good place to start, and doesn't take much time regardless.

    Isn't it possible to burn out your low beam? I remember having a similar problem with my Mazda. I just drove hOme with my fog and high beams on.
