Like I said. You have dual filament bulbs in the rear. Check them to make sure that they are the correct bulbs and are not burnt. There is not multiple grounds for the front lighting system. The front headlamps closest to the grill are your lows and highs The outer bulbs are just lows. The front lamps on the capri and mustang use a common ground on the driver side. The front lamp section wire for ground is black. All four headlamp bulbs, front parking lamps, and front side markers all share this common ground. The power wires going to the passenger headlamps and marker/parking lamps are split from a connector before the connection at the directional, hazard, beam select switch. So I doubt that this is your problem; because you are not having issues with only one side headlamps working. The power going to the directional/stop lamps is after the connection at the directional switch. The light green wire(Pin 7) at the back of your directional switch is the the power feed from the brake lamp fuse and stop lamp switch. Make sure that you have power at this point with the headlamps on. Please perform the voltage drop/signal test like I recommend. It could be a fualty turn signal switch. Check the bulbs in the rear. Replace the burned out headlamp on the passenger side and the parking lamp bulb. Check for proper signals at the sockets when the condition is present. Post results. Good luck. Also, is there any aftermarket wiring jumping from the fuse panel?
