It may have something to do with the head light switch gone bad. Do the lights come on automatically, or can you turn them on or off manually?

Turn them on manually. Same switch for both sides, but just driver side front and back not working.


Get a meter turn the power on to the lights go from the power sude to ground and see if you get 12 volts. If you do then you might have a bad ground...


And you say the bulbs are good? Have you tried moving the bulbs in the sockets with the light switch on? Sometimes it is just to make the connection by doing this. Otherwise I suspect a bad ground wire by the light assemblies that may be broke, or in need of cleaning.
