headlights.. strange.. issue?

Ok... heres the deal.. I replaced the driver's side lamp a while back. It would work on highbeam.. but not on low beam. When I replaced it, same thing. Today I went through and replaced every/single/fuse it needed to be done.. and im still having the same problem.
basically before i did this.. id have my headlights on.. and the pass. side lamp would work along w/ fog lights and it would be ok. i could turn on the high beams but that would shut off the pass side headlight and turn the high beam on in the driver side.

when i replace the fuse both highbeams work but still cannot get the drivers side one to turn on. so im thinking., wahat are some possible troubleshooting steaps i can take to fix this

I'd check the headlight relay, headlight switch and the multifunction switch in that order.
