No passengers side works
Drivers side goes dark

Are you sure it's not just a faulty bulb?

No not sure would the low beam go out when the high beam is switched on?

Yes, from my read of the schematic, that is the way it's designed. What if you swap the headlight bulbs from side to side, and see if the issue follows the bulb?

It's more likely to be an open high beam filament in the bulb than anything else.

Thank you
I’ll give it a shot if it’s not the bulb what would you look at next?

The circuits are wired in parallel, which means if you have power to one bulb, you should have power to the other. If this turns out to be something other than a bulb, we'll need to do some electrical testing with a test light, if you have one, and figure out what's going on.

It's going to be the bulb, though. :-)

Please take a moment to rate my answers by clicking the stars at the top of the page, that's how I get compensated. If you need anything else, let me know, I'm happy to follow up.

You will also have an opportunity to add a tip to the payment if you wish, and that is greatly appreciated. I work very hard to make sure you're getting the very best information I can provide for you.
