No lights

high beams work but not the regular lights. fuse is good and bulbs are good.where should I check next?

Have you checked the contacts on the headlight receptacles? They may be corroded. If the receptacles are OK then it’s probably in your multi-function switch. Move the switch back and forth from bright to dim rapidly several times then see if the lights come back on. You can also have someone watch the lights as you move the switch to see if they come on. The airbag system is involved in the replacement of the switch so it’s not a DIY job.

Make sure that low beam bulbs are good also. Some people have have been fooled by not checking that first.
