95 explorer head lamp problem

95 explorer eddie bauer edition.

right headlight will not work unless on brights. even brights didnt work at one time. so i tried new bulb and fuse for that headlight. now it works on brights. so im guess its not the dimmer switch considering one side works. a short in the cord being the logical guess? just follow it until i may find some sort of problem?

Sounds like it is a wiring issue. I would examine the wires coming from the assembly. I would also look at the plg assembly in the rear of the unit to make sure that it is not cracked or damaged.

are the headlights dual headlights? if so check the wiring coming from the bulb that doesnt work. look for corrosion on the plug, shreaded wires etc....

Sounds like it is a wiring issue or short. Have a look at the wires to make sure there are none exposed or frayed.

LMK how it goes.
