My washer pump and low beams on my head lights are both not

Customer Question

my washer pump and low beams on my head lights are both not working, wondering it they share a ground?
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?
Customer: yes and yes
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 05 terra
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: if its easy and accessible I will fix it, bulbs are good fuses good. that's about it
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: i hit a set of train tracks on the high way, and my lights flickered, as time went on they would turn off and on, on their own, eventually they just stopped working, just the low beams, high beams are fine, and i believe the washer pump stopped about the same time, that is why i believe they may be related.

They do not share a ground, but they are tied together through the combination switch. I would look at the switch for the problem.
