    Default Headlight out

    So my truck is showing her age. I've lost a headlight. The turn signal, highbeam all work, but the low beam light is out and the bulb is not the culprit nor is the fuse. I've checked, twice. So I'm just getting started troubleshooting since I just discovered it this morning, but due to work and other circumstances I haven't gotten around to it.

    Any one else had similar issues??

    Check for corrosion on the bulb socket or connector. Could also be a bad ground. Do you have power at the connector?

    Sorry for the delay on the update. So I worked on it yesterday morning, but it rained me out mainly so I didn't take any pictures referencing the damage. I had some frayed wires inside the plastic protection by the fuse box to the headlight. I screwed myself by plugging in the right light bulb to test if it was the bulb one more time and it blew it out. I bought some new fuses, bulbs and an old socket plug from a junk yard Tundra I picked up awhile back, even though no fuses were blown I changed them out, and I soldered and shrinkwrapped the new wires and socket and both are working fine now. Both grounding points by the headlights were also loose, so before I plugged everything back in I tightened everything down I double checked everything else, but so far so good.
