High beam wiring is separate from low beams. Use a volt/ohm meter and check the voltage at the plug for the headlight on the side that works correctly and then che3ck the side that doesn't work right. You should find that one wire has no voltage on the side that doesn't work. Trace back to find where the wire is broken and repair it to deliver voltage just like on the side that works correctly.

Billfranks thank you !!! Was so frustrated with everything else didn't look for the small things first !
