no lowbeam headlights

My girlfriend has a 2006 Pontiac g6 gtp. This weekend I noticed that at some point her headlights weren't working. My first thought was that I had turned off the automatic running lights by accident. Once I verified that the auto lights were on, but we still had no headlights, I tried to manually turn on the headlights. Once again, I found that we had no lights. We were driving at night at the time so I had to ride home with the high beam lights on. The high beam lights work fine, as do the side marker lights, but no low beam. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this happen and where should I be looking to troubleshoot the problem. Thanks in advance.

fuses??? check number 7 and 9 in the fuse box under the hood.... or maybe both bulbs burnt out at the same time... odd but not impossible.

Low beams only affected as in the original post?
Very possible a bad multifunction switch but without circuit testing its impossible to know. First try swapping the low beam relay out with another (with the same number) in the engine fuse block & see if any joy to be had there. Each side is fused individually so I doubt both fuses are open. But check them anyway. What year is that vehicle?

Have you tried pulling the relay & spraying the slots good with electrical contact cleaner spray & swapping the relay with another known good one?

Absolutely not. Only use electrical contact spray cleaner available at any parts house, hardware, most variety stores with a auto parts dept.

If that doesn't help you are probably looking at replacing the whole fuse block.
