The problem could be a blown fuse. The left and right sides have separate circuits and if the bulb was blown the fuse could be too. Check the fuse first, if the fuse is ok the problem could be with the wiring. To have this issue properly diagnosed, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to inspect your headlight and make the necessary repairs.
