i grew up on L.I. and in nyc and we always called them both low and dipped beams and when going from brites to low beams we called that dipping them... so def not an upstate thing.. perhaps , if ur younger than i, it's a term that''s gone out of use.

Well, maybe I misunderstood you - when going from High Beams to Low Beams, I could see how the instance is referred to as 'dipping' them... I guess what I was saying is that we don't refer to the Low Beams as "Dipped Beams" as a general term around here...
Either way, small talk - I'm 34 - maybe I'm younger or older - who knows!

Seems like the original problem of the poster was a blown bulb! :)

And to think, this whole time I thought the low-beams were to be used non-stop and the hi-beams were next to useless. I'm supposed to be using the hi-beams non-stop and the low-beams when I'm within 500ft of another vehicle!

Coincidentally, that's about 100% of the time for me.
