I got a problem with my drivers side head light. The Bulb won't light up at all but when I flip on the high beams it will light up no problem. I check the circuti breaker in the engine compartment to make sure it was okay, it was. During the night on when the lights automatically turn on, only the left passenger light is on. In the day niether lights up and the Service Vehicle Soon light comes on.

Can someone tell me why this is happening and how to remedy it.

Also, if the bulb is bad will the High beams still work.

The bulb has two filaments, one for high beam, one for low beam. So yes, if one of the filaments is bad the other will still most likely light up.

So, go replace that bulb. Check the how-to section for a write up on that procedure.

just in case check your headlight sockets, the blue ones where you plug your headlamp bulbs into. make sure those aren't corroded, because that's what happened to me.

Or IIRC: Park car & turn off engine. Pull E-Brake 1-click & restart engine.

Did you just replace the bulbs?? If yes, then you might have put in 9004's instead of 9007's. They look very similar, but will cause problesm similar to what you describe. I bought Silverstars that were mispackaged, had 9004's instead of 9007's.
