Headlight

I have a problem with the headlights.
My right side low beam is out. First thing I did was replace the bulb and guess what, that was not the problem. I used a test light to verify that there was no power at the headlight. The ground was good.
Rather than try and trace down the wire, would it work to just run a wire from the driverís side head lamp low beam?
Since I donít have a manual any advice would be nice.
Thanks.

Pull the fuse panel cover off and check the lowest row of fuses. There should be 15 in a row from left to right and they are numbered 34-48. I don't know which one you are considering the right side but, passenger side fuse is #47 and driver's side is #46. I'll bet you have a blown fuse.

Sweet! It was a blown fuse. I did not think of that because I figured the headlights had one fuse to run both of them. After further review someone had added something to the wiring harness and took it off but did not tape up the wires. I think it shorted out there and blew the fuse.
Thanks again for the help as it saved me some cash and kept it out of the shop.
