The power gets to the lights and goes to the elements and into the radiator support to battery ground. If you have power on the blue wire and none of the lights work then I would jump between the blue wire in the dimmer switch plug and the green wire to see if the brights come on. Then if they do, or don't, come on, then jump the blue and tan wire and see if the low beams come on.

If none of the lights work, then they are all burned out or the grounds for the lights, are not making good connection to the radiator support or the battery negative.
