I have a '91 Eddie Bauer and I don't know if my answer applies to a 93 model but get an electrician to check your dip/high beam and indicator unit on the steering column. I replaced mine and the problem of no dimmed headlights was fixed. The light switch always seems to run hot with lights on.

Probably a short SOMEWHERE. You have to trace the wires to find it.

Why does your 92 Nissan maximas headlights turn off when the switch is turned on you bought new headlights today and that did not fix the problem would it be the switch or wiring?

This is a wiring issue. If the switch were the issue, the light would not turn on at all. Sounds like something is wired backwards, or there is a cross short. If there is a short to ground, you will be blowing fuses and possibly burning up relays. Consult your vehicle's wiring diagram to ensure the aftermarket headlights are wired correctly.

Is is possible for both headlights to go out at the same time or do you have a problem with a switch?

Yes both headlights can burn out at the same time, I had it happen once, it is rare. If both high and low beams are out, then I would think that it might be the switch. You could get a cheap test light and check the plug to see if there is current to the lights.

Why would my 97 mercury villager brake lights not work but dash and tail light come on when braking?

I would check the rear bulbs. I just had this issue and it ended up my brother had used the wrong bulb, and odd enough it caused the brake lights to stay on with headlights. When headlights were not on and you applied the brakes the dash would light and brake lights worked. Strange, HUH? I must admit before this revelation, I replaced headlight switch and brake switch, with no avail.
