I would suggest referring to your owners manual. If you do not have one you can do a search on Google for one. Just include the name brand model number and the word manual in your search.
I ran a quick search for a few similar terms and seen a few that mentioned a switch on the control panel. If there is a switch there should be a diagram in the front of the manual that show its location.

How do i find problem with wiring for headligts in a 2002 ford escort

You will need a basic voltmeter. The headlight wiring is very simple, with a directly-switched positive (+) line and a chassis negative (-) line being the only two connections to the headlights. The headlights are switched through the HEADLIGHT SWITCH and the HIGH BEAM SWITCH (unless you have automatic lighting, in which case they are additionally switched through a relay circuit).

First thing to check is continuity of the ground circuit by switching the voltmeter over to the OHMS setting, determining which connector at the headlight is supposed to be NEGATIVE (usually a black wire), and making sure that there is minimal resistance between the negative terminal and any chassis metal.

Then, using the VOLTS setting on the meter, starting at your headlight switch, you will need to check voltage in the circuit, with your lights switched ON, of course, to see where positive voltage is lost. Most likely culprits are burned fuse, bad light switch, or a burned wire connecting to the high beam switch.

Headlight wiring diagram

Honestly, there simply not much difficulty to the way headlights are wired on any vehicle. Standard headlights receive positive 12v from the headlight switch directly (or through a relay, if you have automatic headlights), and the switch receives power through the fuse block from the battery. When you turn the headlight switch on, you should get 12v at the input connector to your headlights. If the headlight connector is not receiving +12v at the connector when you turn the headlight switch on, check the fuse, the switch, and the relay. If the headlight assembly is receiving +12v at the connector, check the bulb. If the bulb tests good with an ohmmeter, check for a broken ground wire. That is simply all there is.

Replace your right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in halfway and the headlight goes out(more power to the starter). Push the button in all the way and the solenoid kicks in. The starter button is causing both problems.

Headlights won't come on when I turn on the switch

I am working on my 85 DL right now and got a few surprises when I went behind the dash - someone had been there before and moved a few things. I've owned the car for 21 years so it happened quite a while ago. I pulled my instrument cluster out along with the headlight switch. I suggest that you pull the headlight switch, ( a screwdriver removes the cover, after you've pulled the switch knob off with a good, steady tug on it.) Check for a loose connection. I found that Volvo and Haynes can't agree on the location of the relays so get a part number from the dealer for the headlight relay and then get started looking under the dash, especially under the middle A/C vents for the one you seek. I also found one hidden on the driver's side at the bottom of the center pedestal. It's black if that helps any.
