Lowbeams Do Not Work Highbeams Do

I was having an issue with the Battery, and my car not starting, during that time my lowbeams stopped working, so I believe it is an electrical system issue, my lowbeams do not work but my highbeams do... What do I need to look at to fix this issue?

This could only be the high beam switch, the lights themselves, or the wiring between them.

Re: Lowbeams Do Not Work Highbeams Do

High beam switch = multi-function switch. Of course, that is the arm on the steering column you use for turn signal, dimmer. I can't remember for sure if you need to pull the steering wheel for access or not. Remove horn pad, air bag and steering wheel. Beware of the air bag, follow the instructions in your repair manual.
BTW, i would check the bulbs first, or you may be wasting time and money.
