Default Fuse or relay for the headlights?

This morning on my way to work, my headlights cut off.

My high beams work, but headlights dont.

Maybe I am misreading the fuse/relay guide, or maybe I am just blinded by my fury, but I can't find if its a fuse or relay I need to be looking for or if its its a burnt wire somewhere.

Please help!

if you have HIDs then check your bulbs and ballast if not then check whatever kind of bulb you have in there. if it's neither then check your fuse box and look under the cover to see which fuse it is for your low beams.

I thought relays were just low voltage switches. Failure of both low beams would indicate your problem is a fuse, rather than bulbs or a relay. If you've modified your lights, look there after checking your fuses.

you have 2 10 amp mini fuses under the hood in the fuse box by your battery. check those, but it is pretty uncommon for both headlight fuses to blow at once.

if you have HID's then look at those fuses i talked about in the above sentence and if you have an HID wiring harness, check the relay to the harness and the fuse in the harness itself.

also check the bulbs to see if maybe just maybe just your low beams went out for some odd reason.
