Van Vexations

Last night I started to go to a friends when my headlights refused to come on. Both lights going out at once is unlikely so I figured I'd blown a fuse.

Several fuses and 2 halogen bulbs later, I am still without headlights. 

I thought it might be the switch, but the switch activates the running lights and dome lights fine.

I've been pondering the wiring diagram I got from the auto-parts store, but my volt-meter's not working and in any event its dark now.

I go to work at 3AM Monday. This could be an issue.

1 Do you have combo bulbs or separate high-beam and low-beam bulbs?  If the latter, the high beams might work even if the low beams don't, which will annoy oncoming traffic but let you see to drive.

2 Almost all cars have a headlight relay somewhere, to keep the lamp current from having to flow directly through the switch. On most trucks its somewhere hanging off the firewall, but could be wherever the fuse box is.
