Have you check the ground on that side of the light. it could be not properly grounded.
if there is no good ground, what would happen is that one bulb would become a ground for the other to light low where as the other one would not light anymore.

tnx again 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: headlight low beam

Test to see if you have voltage at the bulb connector in low beam position. I'd almost bet that if there is no voltage there for the low beams that you have a bad high/low switch.

It could be your fuel injectors that are clogged up. Get them cleaned and it should start. Hope this helps, James Booth

I have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder the passenger side headlight will not come on but there is power and if I plug the bulb into the drivers side it lights. I have checked the fuses under the hood and they are...


if it's like a Quest, the relay on the passenger fender controls the left headlight and vice versa.

Could also be the headlight switch, I have seen that too.

Sounds like there is a short in the bulb of your headlight. Try replacing it to see if that helps.
