    Same thing happened to me on my 98. I spent half a day testing the headlight harness and switches , and found nothing, finally replaced both bulbs and all was good. Somehow both my low beams burnt out at the same time.

    Do the driving light go on? I have the same issue with a 98. The high beams will work. The low beams will not unless I turn the switch only to the parking lights at night which illuminate the dash and the read tail lights. I am pretty sure it is a bad switch for the light position. Just got a used one off ebay and will give it a try possibly this weekend.

    High beams and driving lights, but no low beams usually mean a defective multi-function switch.

    There's a brown wire that can fail after years of tilt wheel use.
