Suzuki 2010 SX4 LE

SX4 LE - 4 Door Sedan here.

This happened a few weeks ago, both of the front headlights went out at the same time. Don't really want to take it to a mechanic and pay few hundred for him to check it out if its something minor I can do myself.

Has this happened to anyone else, what solved your issue? Is it the fuse maybe?
Since the high beams are still working I am assuming I do not need to change the bulbs, but please correct me if I am wrong.

I check youtube but was unable to find any video on this for my car type.

If it's a sealed beam with both filaments in the same glass housing then yes its the bulbs since your hi-beams still work. It's not unusual for both headlamps to burn out almost at the same time. Replace one, replace both.

The high beams are a different filament than the low beams. You could have two burned out low beams and the highs could still work.

In your case it's doubtful it's a bulb problem.

I'll check further.

PJ, that's true, Two filaments in the same sealed housing. Low beams don't work, hi-beams do. Electrical power is going to sealed units, switch works. I say low beam filaments are burned out. New bulbs in order.

I was looking for the wiring diagram and could not find it. I know there is a headlamp relay in the system.

I'm looking at a picture of the Suziki underhood fusebox. There is a relay for headlamps, a main 25A headlamp fuse and 4 headlight fuses. I would turn the headlights on and you should hear the relay click. With a test light you can check the low beam fuses to see if they're live.

Your car takes the same bulb replacement for both the hi and low beam. Both contained in one housing or bulb.

I was looking at a video and yes there is a relay. But according to the source of the video there would be other signs of a bad relay. Not just the head lights.
