I don't know what kind of car you have, but if the headlights work in either the dim or bright mode, but not both, I would suspect the dimmer switch. If they don't work at all, the headlight switch is probably the culpret, unless of course both bulbs are burned out, which I have seen on one occassion.

All vehicles are required to have low- and high-beam headlamps. If your low-beam headlamps both fail after dark, try switching to high beam. If the high beams don't work either, switch on the emergency flashers. In either case, get the car out of traffic and off the road as quickly as safely possible.

Why don't they work 1986 Honda accord lx headlamps don't come on you replaced the fuse and headlamps but still don't come on other lights work though?

Look at the wiring bundle that feeds the headlights. The wires will eventually break because of the constant up & down flexing of the wire bundle (motorized hidden headlamps). The problem will likely be found within inches of where the bundle is secured to the inside of the popup headlight carrier (where the flexing would be concentrated).
