OK, wife comes home says the Low beams are out. Both of them, so I am going to assume it is not both bulbs going out at the same time. Anyway, is the low beam fused seperate from the High beam which is working fine?

Also, where will I find the LOW beam fuse?

The thing is most people don't realise they have a burnt low beam until the other one burns. You may want to check both bulbs. Each headlamp filament is separately fused so there again doubt both low beam fuses burnt at the same time.

headlight fuses are in the fuse box under the hood, but both right and left low beams are on separate fuses.

***EDIT***
Coby beat me to it.

OK guys, I looked up a fuse diagram and it seems the headlights are separately fused so not much chance that was it. I am going to pull the headlights and check the bulbs tomorrow. I put some of the premium halogens in about a year ago and it is probably time for them to go. Maybe one went out a while ago and she just noticed now that both are out. But, I was working on some stuff a couple days ago at night on the car and would think I would have noticed...We shall see tomorrow when I check the bulbs. Probably just go with standard bulbs this time.

EDIT: Oh, and just after posting this I see I had a couple replies. Thanks fellas. I found that fuse diagram in another thread on the forum and realize the separate fusing for each headlight off of it. At least that ruled out one possibility.

Thanks. Wish me luck tomorrow. I will wait until then to check the bulbs when it isn't so cold and dark out.

Yep, stock.
Both low beams were burned out. Who would have thunk it. I had heard that when those premium halogens go out, then tend to go out in pairs. I guess that is true. At least it was in my case.
Thanks for the help everyone.
