    Right Headlight doesn't work on Dim

    My right headlight went out on dim, so I figured no big deal and bought a bulb, but that didn't fix it. Checked the fuse, its good too. My fog lights don't work either. I'm out of ideas. I'm guessing broken wire, but where do you start looking? Anybody else have this problem? Thanks,
