Default Head lights and lighter

I bought 96 ranger 3.0 V6. I really like it. It's very comfortable. I noticed the other night both front lights are out. The brake lights work and the tail lights are on and parking lights are on. From other autos I've owned they usually don't burn out at the same time. My first question is how do check to see if it's a simple bulb repair. I see bulbs for about six dollars. The second question is about the lighter. It's not there. Just an empty hole. I think these are simple repairs. any thoughts would be appreciated.

Check your fuses.
take a pic of the lighter. The whole assembly is missing or just the lighter part?

If you check your fuses and they are good, I would check the harness connecting to your headlight switch. They are pretty bad about burning up. I had to replace my connector on mine. If it looks like some of the wires are discolored around the connector then it has been getting really hot.
