Question is a bit vague when you show half the engine bay. Always a good idea to state the year and model when looking for advice.
I would guess from the photo that its a 92-94 carb 1275.
If your talking about the mess of wires behind the carb it looks like somebody has "updated " the inline fuses but hasn't maintained the wiring colours so you don't know whats what. Theres also some non original relays which may have been added for spot lights. If your having problems with your headlights You should find five inline fuses inside between the heater and steering column, fore of which are headlights.

Thanks for your reply . It's a 1994 mini Sprite . At the moment I have no ignition lights and diped beams aren't working . We were thinking someone had put on spots alright the wiring to them was crazy .

Dip beam fuses are under the dash like I said already but if both are gone I'd be checking the column lighting switch.Ignition (and oil pressure) lights are feed from an inline fuse with white wires on both sides. For reliability I would spend some time sorting out thoes inline fuses using good quality fuses and proper crimp or solder connections. They always give trouble.
