Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer
All of the lights work except for one low beam headlight. The running lights work just fine but when you flip on the lights only the passenger side headlight works. Although, the high beams work just fine which are from the same light bulb. I tried replacing the light bulb first but it did nothing. The drivers side low beam headlight still will not turn on.
Replace low beam bulb...or fuse is bad.

Check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

Testimonial: "Do you know where the ground would be though for the low beam driver side? I am having difficulty hunting it down. There is no power at the plug or before it. (I stabbed a little hole in the wire just to check to make sure it was not the plug) I also replaced the switch on the dash for the lights hoping that would fix it. Although, there is still no power."

My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!
The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

The blinking light is telling you that you have a headlight out, if you look the service light should be coming on when the light stops blinking.
Replace the head light and all should be fine.
