Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I CHECKED FUSES  ...WHILE DOING SO I NOTICED NUMBER 35 MISSING. THATS REAR BLOWER MOTOR...CAN A UNRELATED MISSING FUSE CAUSE OTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUES TO GO HAYWIRE?  CUZ MY HEADLIGHTS (EXCEPT HOLDING ON HIGH BEAMS) STILL DONT WORK... CHECKED RELAYS... HEADLIGHTS ARE JUST NEWEST OF SEVERAL MALFUNCTIONS IE:Power windows don't work. stereo lights/volume, dash and dome and hazards are touchy... BUT I NEED MY HEADLIGHTS TO DRIVE AT NIGHT TO WORK B?Y?

However, the majority of the cars were completely covered under warranty.....they certainly don't tell everyone that though!
