educate yourself before just trying anything.....

test the fuse with a mutlimeter, and check the bulb for continuity to make sure they arent fried......also with a multimeter...

also why wouldnt you connect to the battery since that is where your voltage comes from, not just any 12v source in the car...... there will be a noticable difference in those 2 spots.

Yes and no. They use the same housing, but there are 2 filaments inside the bulb. It's possibel the high beams still work if you surged the lowbeams hooking up your guage lights wrong.
