you might have to trace the wires back through the harness if you have power on the left cause i believe there spliced in the front not exactly sure though

Check your wires to that headlight socked, and check the socket itself. Both headlights are spliced together in parallel so if one works and the other doesn't, it's not a fuse or a relay or a switch.

I am assuming you know that it doesn't just need a new bulb.
