I just noticed that headlights arent working...I turn on the lights and the sidemarkers turn on but not the headlights. I am about to go and check the actual bulbs but if it turns out the bulb is okay...what would cause this?

ye, check car being on, then check fuse, then check your bulbs, and last but not least, don't forget to check your personality at the door

I got message on the OBC saying something about "low beam hedlight failed" or something along the lines of that. That was yesterday when I got that message. I dont think I had the car on. I am about to go out and check. Thanks for all the help and input. I am really liking this car over my Max.
