I have a Hyundai Accent 1999 and when was driving last night, suddenly the both low beam headlights stopped work at the same time. High beam headlights works, but low beam headlights does not. I checked bulbs, fuses and I can't find the problem. Can you help me please solve this problem?

Attached is a schematic of the headlight wiring.

With headlight turned on to Low beams, check if the headlight relay is working.

If grounding the Red wire at headlight switch turns the low beams on, the headlight switch is faulty.

You can get it from bookstores. Haynes is one of the leading publisher for shop manuals.

You can also subscribe online to sites such as Mitchell1. Here is a link to Mitchell1.
