Smile 1998 SL500 Headlights (Brights)

My '98 SL500 headlights suddenly went out (at the same moment) Still work fine on dim. I've checked fuses, bulbs and the problem seems to be no power making it to the fuse box, which would indicate either the dimmer on the steering column (which I wouldn't expect at 58000 miles) or a relay in an unknown location. Anyone experienced this? Anyone know where the relay would be located? Thanks in advance!
