Default Headlights do not function :(

:( I don't know what'* going on with my car electric wise. My car doesn't seem to turn on its headlights. I checked the fuse box (which is confusing and I tried every configuration possible swapping jumpers) Is there something I missed?

The parking lights and rear bulbs work fine, just the High-Beam and regualr lights are not functioning. I removed the light bulbs and checked them out also; they seem in good form. No separation or anything

(Fog lights, turn signals, interior, radio, rear defrost, windows, anything electronic works fine)
Anyone know the jumper?? Is it not 1B 20A SIG B/U LPS/BTSI/COR

Any help is appreciated

That would be the "maxifuse relay center" just below the passenger wiper, right?

You found the 50, right? The headlamps need more current then other things.
