With a test light or voltage meter you would check fuses - if good check power at switch and thru switch when turned on - then relay for headlights - then power at lights - you can use battery post as ground first - then use body metal as ground - this will tell you if the problem is on the positive side or negative/ground side

Dash lights are not working


90% of the time if your dash lights are not working it's due to a blown fuse. Check your fuses for one labeled courtesy lamps. The fuse panel should be located under your passenger side dash. If all the fuses check out fine it could also be a problem with the dimmer switch. Try raising and lowering the brightness using the dimmer switch to see if this has an noticeable affect.

Tail lights not working


Sounds like a bad headlight switch. Pull one from a donor vehicle (junk yard) to replace yours.

Low beam headlights go out when switched from high beam


Check the fuse. There is a fuse block under the hood as well as on on the passenger side forward of the door jam, close to the loorboards. If thats not the problem try pulling the switch and make sure that it is not warn out. The switches inside are not what you may think and if you remove it you will see how easy it could fail. Try replacing the switch.

It sounds like the relay switch is weak or going bad. It gets power and then stays closed giving 12V to the lights. Try replacing the relay.
