Behind the passenger side footwell trim. The piece that goes from under the dash, and becomes the door sill. There is a white box whith a wire harness. This is the control box for twilite centinal. It may have failed and needs replacement. But there is a maxi fuse for just the head lights I think in the fuse panel. Try there first.

I had both bulbs fail at the same time on my old 9C1. I couldn't believe it! Did you check them? I know it seems unlikely...

Pull the bulbs out and inspect the elements. Very Happy And yes if the lower elements are the only thing that failed. Wink

Splice in a new wire. Or you can replace the whole socket. They sell them at Autozone and PepBoys...

Upgrade the wiring. APC makes a nice, cheap harness. There's plenny on eBay, too... Smile

(And it'll help your light output, too! Very Happy)
