Question Cutlass supreme headlights quit working

My headlights worked fine in my 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme, got in the car the other day to go somewhere, headlights weren't working. Running lights, fog lights and brights all worked but low beams did not. We checked the fuses but nothing seems blown. I know it's too much of a coincidence that they both blew. Plus we just replaced them not that long ago. Could it be the switch even though the running light work? Someone please give me some ideas!
Also have a thread in the Olds Cutlass section that I need help on too if someone wants to take a look... rough idle

This should have been posted in the Cutlass forum, any way, check for 12v to the low beam connector at the h'lamp itself for starters.

I apologize but no one seems to respond when I put something in there. There isn't any problem with the connector.

I mean check for 12v at the low beam wires at the connector, is that what you mean by no problem at the connector?

There does not seem to be anything wrong with or at the connector

I you have 12v to the h' lamp and ground also and the lamp does not work it is bad, check the grounds to be sure.
