I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.
1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.
2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.
3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.
Please post your findings or comments.

Dear garrejose: The 300ZX uses a 2 fuse system to operate the headlights. You can find some with fuses in the fuse box ans ome with fusible links. On the right hand inner fender of the engine compartment there are some fusible links just forward of the battery that are located in a black box which is right near the strut tower. Open the box and you will see red wires connected to a green connector at one end and the wires separate on the other end with female spade connectors.They wires may appear intact, but remove one wire at a time from the end which has the spade connector and pull it lightly like you are stretching the wire. If it stretches and breaks like it had been cut inside, the fuse has been blown. Do the same fp the other side. I believe there are two of these green fuses in this box along with one which has a larger black wire. You will also find on the right side of the engine compartment near the front, a black relay box with a bunch of relays in it.The Box cover is labeled as to the location of the headlight relay. Depending on the production date you will find the following relay.
Before 9/86 a 5 pin (blade) relay with a black plastic case made by Jidco, although you could find a yellow one made by Niles (Hiatchi) on some Z's. The part number for this relay is 25230-C996A
After 9/86 it is a 6 pin(blade) relay with a brown plastic case, made by Jiden or Jidco. The part number for this one is 25230-7996A. Next, on some headlight switches, they had two sets of points.
One set served each side of the car. DON'T forget to check the grounds! My son, best friend and I race Nissan 300Z's. You can see a little footage of our racing on Google Video, under "Flying Pigs racing, how we got there". Why the name? It will be explained in the video. My suggestions "Should solve your problem. OH! by the way, I hope you didn't miss the obviios>>>>>The head light bulb?
The harness? Iin my career as a Nissan tech, which spans back as far as 1968, I have found not a single 300ZX with a headlight problem related to the harness unless the car had been wrecked,
Good luck. PS: I am new to this site and looking for people to write back, if I have solved their problems, so I can improve my rating. Help me out if I have helped you. OK?
