If the 15amp fuse marked number 4 has power, you should have power into the headlight switch and then out to the lights.

try turning the headlight knob left to right several times, and jiggle the switch at night. Also check your fuse panel should be a 10 amp or less fuse that says "Insr" or something like it.

WHAT YOU MIGHT CHECK IS THE FUSE FOR TAILLIGHTS, OR DASH LIGHTS. THEY WORK OFF THE SAME FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS BLOWN THE HEADLIGHTS WORK BUT NO TAIL OR DASH LIGHTS

Dash board,head light,tail ligts stays on when engine is off


The P0420 that you are getting may be an inoperative air/fuel sensor (the actual code is "catalyst system efficiency below threshold". This code will not affect the head/tail lamps or dash lights.
You may have a bad headlamp switch.
