Found schematic and able to pinpoint my problem was multi functional switch. Low beams work now
When you say "multi functional switch" are you referring to the Turn Signal Switch on the steering column or the
Headlight Switch on the left side dash?

I have the same issue here. No low beams, high beams work fine. All fuses, bulbs, and relays check out ok. I swapped the dash mounted Headlight Switch with a salvaged one, same issue.

Also, do you have a link to the schematic?

Thanks.

What year/model/engine/trans do you have?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean by "simple wire"?
Im not sure what he meant by that either.

You most likely have the same problem though and need to replace the multifuction switch (turn signal, low/hi beam).

Do this test first:
Remove the multifuction switch
With the ignition ON and main headlight switch ON, jumper (paperclip, etc) pin 8 (GRN/RED) to pin 9 (GRN/BLU) at the multifuction switch connector. The low beams should come on.

Good luck

Jumping pin 8 and pin 9 at the multifuction switch connector DID turn the low beams on. It looks like I found my cars issue.

You can also test the switch for continuity using an ohm meter, test light, etc, at the same two contacts. When the switch is in the low beam position you should have continuity.

I swapped out the multifuction switch (turn signal, low/hi beam) and now all is well. It fixed the issue. Thanks everyone for your help!
