Hello and welcome to JustAnswer

I'm assuming you have a CR-V.

The headlamp not working could be a wiring issue or possibly a failure in the module inside the fuse box in the dash, which is what controls the lights. If the high beam on that side works then you should be able to rule out a power feed issue.

Do you know whether it's power or ground you're missing at the bulb?

No also fixed box in dash has a different pattern than the one sent to me

It seems like ground but checking the power from center lug to each of the 2 other shows 12 volts in each but the lower left beam still does not work
