Solution: bad connection at split.

I tested the connection with a test light. I was not getting enough volts even though my volt meter was reading that there was power. I took the battery out and got to where the wire splits off to the right head light. I opened up the 3 way split and saw that the connection was poor. Took out the wire, cut a new end and simply clamped the wire back into the split. Now it works.

I also tested to see if fuse 8 had anything to do with it. You do not need fuse 8 unless you have fog lights.

Thank you for the help
