Bulbs are new.
I am completely lost.
What should I do next?

Do you have meter or test light? If so check for voltage at headlamp. Come about suddenly?

I don't. But I could get one. How do you do that? The Headlights were working and then they just stopped I have one very very dim running light. The fog lights and turn signals all work.

Are those connected somehow to the main headlights? Or are those switch fuses?
