Look at schematics from wiring diagram. Trace wires from junction block on outer firewall if necessary.
If grill was removed, lamp plugs were unplugged in back, check for power at the lamp plug. Go from there.
Could have gotten paint into the lamp plugs.

Just for the database was dropping dropping voltage across the dimmer switch, had a bad ground on driver side and the headlight out on the passenger side!
