I recently changed out my bulbs with some new ones...and everything was working fine the day I put them in...Well I didn't drive that night, but tonight when I went for a drive, I didn't have low-beams...

I got home and looked under the hood...the bulbs were fine...switched in the old ones...so the bulb wasn't out...

I checked the fuse, that wasn't blown...

and I checked the connection to both headlights...and they were secure...

Any ideas? Please help...I am still under warranty, but want to try avoid going back to the dealer, and I have to go out of town Sunday...so I need this fixed by then...please lend me any ideas you might have to fix my problem....Thank you!

P.S. Yes my fogs work...my high-beams work...my side markers...and parking lights...only the low-beams are out!

You put the stock bulbs in and they did come on? or did not come on?
When you have a bulb blow out its not all ways in a area that you can see with
your eyes. I've had two blow out and they still look good from sight. If stock did not come on I would buy stock bulb and try before going to dealer. This way you
know for sure.

You sure you checked all the fuses and everything? It&#39;s gotta be a fuse, if the bulbs were 55watt then you shouldnt have to worry about doing any damage to the H1 wire harness..

If you&#39;ve tried the bulbs, reconnected the harness and checked all related fuses, you should go to the dealer immediately, especially if you are going out of town this coming weekend.

Should I put all my stock bulbs back in before I take it to a dealer? Meaning will having aftermarket bulbs void my warranty and the headlights?

Sorry I haven&#39;t had to take anything back to the dealer before...so I am not sure if changing the bulbs would void the warranty...since in the manual it says to take to an authorized dealer to change the headlight bulbs.
