Headlight issue! Looking for some help

Hi, I am new to this car and new to cars in general actually. My driver's side HID head light does not come on at all. I've replaced the bulb, the ballast and fuses. I'm at a loss of what to do next or how to do it. My drl both turn on, my high beams turn on, however my driver's side low beam wont turn on. When I first got the car the bulb went out slowly. Later my boyfriend replaced that ballast for me, and it worked perfectly for a month although it was running a cheap bulb. After that bulb went out I got an oem bulb, it didn't work, and then I replaced that ballast with another oem one, and it still does not come on. After the ballast I replaced all the fuses in the car (most were looking old and a little sketchy anyway). What should I do from here to troubleshoot?

Multi post for the same tread is not cool and does not help get your question answered.

apply meat around the fixture, then pull on the electrical until you get a mild connection. toby said you need 5$
