Hi Tracy, what age is your car?
In every case, the sidelights (front) and rear tail lights as well as panel illumination have their own circuit and should come on at the first position of the lighting switch.
Do you have a Haynes manual or the club x1/9 info section for wiring diagrams and pick up on the relevant wire colour for the side light circuit.

Two prime possibilities :- The fuse has blown (why!??) - there are two 7.5amp fuses - on the bottom row labelled with a couple of light symbols facing opposite directions.
The lighting switch has gone faulty.

That's my first guess but if all your sidelights are not working ? I would need to check out my Haynes & circuit diagrams folder. let me know.
