My head lights and tail lights went out and i cant find a fuse out
I would first double check your fuses using a test light. They're cheap from auto parts stores, and instead of removing each by hand you simply touch the contacts on each side of each fuse until the light doesn't come on. Also, be sure you check the fuses under the dash, and under the hood. If no fuses are out, I would start checking relays.
Being that the front and back went out at once, I'm inclined to think it's going to be a lighting relay that controls all fuses. Refer to your owner's manual, a chilton or haynes manual, or your local library's auto reference books first to find out which relays (Black sqaure boxes usually in the fuse box under hood) controls lighting. If you find one for lighting it may be worth replacing it just to see if that's the issue. If you have multiple relays concerning lighting you may need to check each. Not sure what the best way is but I always hold my thumb on them while I have someone else try to turn on whatever you're testing. If you feel a slight 'click' within the relay it's good. If not, it's usually bad.
Double check fuses first because with 30-50 fuses it's easy to miss one. Then look into your relays.
