    Okay I will check the voltage at all the sockets and see what they have for power.

    Also check that there is no resistance to ground.

    For that you would need an ohmeter which is one function of an electrical multimeter. Place one probe on the ground conducter in the headlight bulb socket and the other on the battery negative terminal and see how much resistance there is. It should be close to zero.
