Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The issue is not the bulbs or the fuses. Both are fine.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

no it will be the circuit or the headlight switch , let me look up the wiring diagram for it to tell you what to check next ?

if you unplug the other headlight connector and turn the headlight switch on on low beam , test both connectors & tell me what you are missing on the one one not working ?

and I will look up diagram while you doing that .

Or do you want me to remove both headlamps? What will that accomplish
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

I want to see if you are missing a ground or a power or both on the low beam headlight that is not working .

what is your experience with electrical testing ?
