Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The fuse operates both headlights, so if the other headlight is working than the fuse is not the issue. verify with a volt meter that there is power leading to the headlight and let me know, thank you.

I have not had time today to check whether there is a feed to the headlight. The drivers side is ok. But will try tomorrow if work permits. If not it will be next Saturday before I can check anything. Sorry for delay.
