Question about Cars & Trucks
I have power to the running lights and blinkers but no power to headlights
You don't give the make model and year, but some cars have a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch.

The headlamps are powered by a 20Amp self-resetting circuit breaker in the fuse panel. If this breaker is not clicking on and off, you most likely have a bad Turn/Hazzard/Headlamp Switch. The switch that you must buy depends on if your car is equipped with Cruise Control and/or Daytime Running Lights. Also check the connector that plugs into the switch because they sometimes burn. If you plug a burnt connector into a new switch it may work for few days, but it will burn the new switch.

mporteous, It sounds like you have a light switch problem. I can't think of any other reason for the running lights and tail lights not working in this situation. Are your brake lights working when the headlights are off and how about when they are on? Do your four ways hazard lights work in these situations? Try all the lights under these conditions. The reason the left turn signal blinks very fast is because one of the bulbs are burned out. Try the left signal and one light (front or back) will stay on and the other will not come on at all. Replace the bulb that does nothing. Do this before you try all the lights in different situations. I think that you will have to replace the light switch. Good luck with this.
