Why aren't my headlights working?

I've got a 1999 Dodge Neon and just discovered that the headlights aren't working. Both high beams and low beams are dead. However, the parking lights and turn signals work. What could be the problem?

    to check the current going to the headlights, unplug the socket from the filament and check with a test lite ($5 item @ napa). if they lite the tester it's 2 bad bulbs, if not it's switch related. fuse or dimmer switch would be likely.

    first check the fuse. if the fuse is good then it could be the headlight switch or dimmer switch.

    check to see if there is a burnt fuse.
