If no power and fuses okay then probably a broken or corroded wire ,you need to trace the wiring back to the connector and check for power on the same colour wire as at the headlight.

As per Wh I would get a Multimeter and check line for power. You can also use the Multimeter to check the line continuity.Your query somewhat suggests an element of surprise - when last are you aware that they were working.
