Hey everybody.

A few days ago my low beams decided to stop working.

I have checked the relays, the relay wiring/fusible links, all the fuses in the fuse box, the globes and the headlight switch wiring (however haven't tested the switch myself).

The circuit apparently is only broken when all lights are stuffed so it's not that.

Parker and high beams work fine, it's just the low beams. They work at all.

Thanks.

you are going have to get hold of a multimeter, and start testing from the relay back for voltage, then check continuity of all the wiring harness associated with the low beam cct.
