All 4 headlights work when the high beams are on but only one side works when in low beam mode.
Any ideas on diagnosis?

You either have a bad bulb or a bad wire or connection to the bulb. Remove the bulb and check it direct to the battery. The center post is the ground. The other two are high and low. If the bulb works, check the corrosion inside the plug that goes on it. If that is clean, ck power at the terminal block. Simple diagnostics. It is not a switch problem on the dash or you would not get one bulb to light low beam. Same, it is not the high beam switch on the floor.

Both bulbs on the side without low beams might be bad. Swap two side to side and see if the problem follows the bulb.

Low beam element is probably burned out in the bulb not working on low beam.
