Hi there - check the fuses and headlight relay (behind the fuse box) first. These are the most likely failed components causing a lack of headlight function. If you would like assistance, I recommend a headlight system inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
