On my 1990 Mazda 121, the low beam (and sometimes high beam) lights fail due to a faulty light switch on the steering wheel console. I have to pull it apart and clean up the contacts about once every year when it does it. The tail lights also go out. I can tell it has failed again as the dashboard lighting goes out. Andrew.

What are low beam lights?

Low beams are the headlights when they are dipped. Used to light up the road just in front of you and biased towards the kerb nearest you. They also allow you to be seen clearly, but without blinding oncoming vehicles or those in front of you. When there is no other traffic to blind, the headlights should be switched to main beam, to give you the best view ahead and early warning of dangers. A blue light on the dashboard warns you when your headlights are on Main beam and blinding. If you have your headlights switched on and there is NO blue light, then your headlights are on Low beam.
