What causes my low-beam headlights to work only in daylight, not after dark? (1 answer)

Since my Vibe's water pump was replaced recently, all of my lights will work during daylight, but my low-beam headlights (only) stop working once daylight fails. All other lights work properly (daytime running lights, fog lights, high-beams).
