I can't find the fuse for this on the wiring diagrams (see www.autozone.com
's free repair guides), but it might be there.
Instructions for removing the switch appear at www.autozone.com 's free

Instrument Switches, etc.

Check also the connectors . . They get very loose because people don't
realize the 'trick' to getting them off, so the brass lugs get bent
really loose from being torqued all over the place, then overheat and
you get an open circuit on the Lo Beams, You can sometimes snap the
plastic socket off, rebend the lugs, reassemble the socket and be good
(on our '95 Odyssey) there were 'dots' on either side of the headlight
connector, where you squeeze to release the gripper that's holding the
socket on to the holes on the bulb's lugs. They are (very) hard to
release, but apparently that's the way Honda wanted to keep the
connector 'anchored' on the bulb. I don't know what other models / years
this trick applies to.
Aside from that, any connector that's been yanked around can start to
fit loose, and if it's a high current connection, it will get HOT and
burn up. With fuse boxes, it will blow the fuse repeatedly because the
fuse gets too hot to carry the right load.
