Headlights are almost always wired under a relay / breaker system, where your tail lights (AKA PARKING LIGHTS) are always fused. Ford likes to use a fuse for headlights also. Go into your fuseboxes (yes, you most likely have 2) and check the fuses. The owners manual will tell you what ones to pinpoint. Fuses today are visual. Easy enough to check with your eyes.Just yank em out 1 at a time and check em for burnt out elements (like a bad lightbulb)
