No high beams

Curious if anyone had ideas on what could cause this. I recently bought an 08 LE in which everything works except the high beams.

When I pull back or push forward on the headlight control, I see the blue high beam light appear on the instrument panel but the actual bulb doesn't turn on. The low beams and turn signals work fine. I don't have DRL lights as best I can tell. There's no "auto" DRL toggle on the headlight control & the #2,#3,#4 DRL relays in the under hood fuse box are empty (hope that normal?)

No luck after replacing the bulbs and the fuses look ok. I heard the emergency parking brake might affect this, but when I push it on/off, it didn't turn the high beams on.

I've tackled some DIY repair (exhaust, radiator) before but haven't troubleshot anything electrical before. Some tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for that heads-up. My 05 with DRL just had both high beams blow - and I think one of the microfuses. I swapped all relays with my 04 (one at a time) and confirmed they were OK, but then found the bulbs blown. If this new set goes soon, I'll know to take a look at the alternator.
So both high beam bulbs pop at the same time meaning the filaments were broken. And it wasn't the relays? Mine both went at the same time both filaments are just fine they don't appear to be burned out swapping the relays didn't help
