Hello

most likely issue is the headlight ground wire thats secured to the chassis rail just by the headlamp you should see several wires running out of the wiring loom that are secured to the chassis with a ring terminal and a bolt

I'd suggest to undo the bolt , scrub the chassis clean of any corrosion and use a thread tap to clean the thread and use a fresh bolt
