When trouble shooting any problem relating to a car you should always start at the simplest of steps. My first thought would be that the motor burned out and you need to replace it, but maybe its not. Cars are very easy to figure out, its getting to those hard to reach areas is the problem. start out by checking the fuse, check to see if its burned out, and needs to be replaced next, check too see if there is a physical block has something got in the way of them being able to close, next check too see if the motoring , and tracking of the system looks good, has one of the inner control arms broken or have you lost a nut or bolt, compare each side with each other to see if there is any differences., This may sound silly but disconnect the battery, maybe the computer forgot to run the signal to rhe motor, by doing this you may reset the computer, if you are mechanically inclined you may be able to figure it out very easily if your not maybe its time to visit your local repair person, good luck.

Are series circuit's used in car headlights?

No, series circuits are not used in car headlights, because if one headlight were to go out the other would also, because the one light would make an incomplete circuit. Headlights are wired as parallel circuits because when one headlight goes out, the other is unaffected and stays as bright as it was before the other light went out.
