Angry Headlight Low and High Beam not working, fuses ok.

Hi guys I have a 2015 FRS and a few weeks ago my low and high beams stopped working, I have Vlands, checked the bulbs and fuses, they are fine. Put back the stock headlights and same thing. I tried swapping around the relays in the engine bay fuse box, specifically the “headlight” relay and it does not click at all when turning one. Seems to not be getting power to the relay. All other lights works, tails, side markers, turn signals, parking lights work, it’s just the low and high beam that don’t seem to work. Any have any idea?

You'll need a 9008 wire pigtail, but I would check the hid ballasts/bulbs straight to the car battery first to make sure they're operational

Works fine, I plugged them into my friends brz and they work, I placed back the stock headlights on mine too. Still no power to them

Ok I am going to have to start with, How did you check the fuses? Do you have a multi meter? What are your voltage readings at different parts of the system? Have you looked at a wire diagram of the system?

I pulled out every single fuse and checked them visually. I do have a multi meter, just gotta find it somewhere and use it. I checked out the wiring diagram and am pretty sure the problem is somewhere from the battery to the relay since I borrowed a friend's multimeter the other day and the headlight relay port didn't have any power.

Visual is a perfect way to check fuses. Recheck those fuses with a ohm meter. After that then get the wire diagram for your car and start checking the system to verify where you lose voltage.
