the Headlights are on a separate fused circuit, so it does indeed sound as if that's your problem, if the fuse for the lighting appears to be good, change it for a spare anway, should that not work check the wires going to the actual fuse holder under the plastic block as that can break.

Cheers Mark.

did you change a fuse to get it running again? Or did it just randomly work?

Sounds like a short somewhere. Check behind the seat bolts, as this is a known place for it- the wires rub against the bolts and wear through.
