You nailed it, it is definetly a wiring and ground issue, I would start by removing the globe holder and checking for broken, losse corroded trerminals at this end, as this is the one that is more prone to exposure to the elements...you may have to replace a terminal or two to repair it. I would not be surprised if the plastic housing that has the terminal breaks as you try to take it off...but this is just a guess ??

Headlight low beam r side no power high beam works fine


Sounds like the low beam element in the right side is burned out. The auto parts store should be able to verify that and sell you a new bulb.

Location of headlight relay for 1991 ford explorer


The first thing is to make sure the bulbs are good, if the low beam bulbs are bad the high beams will still work, the first thing is to try new bulbs.Replace the bulbs and then let me know the results.Good day.
