Headlights messing with my head

Need help, please.
Daytime - passenger side headlight out.
Night time - driver side headlight out.
Dusk or dawn - both headlights work fine.
Once they're on, they stay on. But once one is out, it's not coming on until next time I drive it.

There are grounds on both sides. Very important grounds that control a large part of the car. i would try cleaning and reattaching.

When restoring my Mallett, we went three days trying to figure out why it would not start. Turned out to be the head light area grounds.

The most likely problem is a loose fuse for the driver side headlight low beam.

Try re-seating all of the fuses and relays in the underhood fuse block.
