hope im posting this in the right forum..

hey there, this morning it started my car and let it warm up like every other morning, then jumped into the car and moved forward and turned full lock and both headlights(low beams) blew at the same time????

hi beams work, parkers work, but no low beam? i pulled out the globes and they dont look broken or split in any way? i purchased these about 7 months ago and payed $60 for these phillips blue vision lights, i dont think its the lights that blew, is there a low beam fuse anywhere? i looked at the fuse box inside the car couldnt see any fuse that had "headlights" labelled next to it??

any guesses anyone?

Thanks in advance

yeah know how to use a test light, whats the dipswitch? the light switch on the dash? what do you reckon i should be testing.?

when i turn the switch to headlights i can hear a solenoid click but nothin happens

just seems weird this has happened as nothing has gone wrong ive had em in for around 8 months? then 2 blow at the same time? also when i just got back home from before there was a weird smell coming from under the bonnet smelt electrical.. pulled up bonnet and checked a few wires but everything looked in order.. i thought maybe my alternator is goin down the drain???

Ok check the relays near the battery .You will find that one of the relays has a burnt terminal.you may/will need to replace the relay and the bosch relay mount .The dip switch is your high/low/ flash switch.Hope this helps.Kevman.
