Low beam headlights went out. I've change the fuses and the bulbs. Everything works but the low beams?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Both are good

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

2002 Mazda tribute

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tribute yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I've changed the bulbs and the fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that should be it

Hello my name is***** sounds to me like you probably have a bad headlight switch, if you have replaced the fuses and the bulbs; the options left a headlight relay and headlight switch, the switch is significantly more common.Please remember to rate my service and accept the answer before you leave the site today, it will not end our conversation.
