One of my headlights is out..so I’ve replaced my bulb assuming it was just out.... A day later when I turn my headlights on my high beams work but the other doesn’t...any thoughts? Also the bulb grease turned a pink color?

I had the same issue a while ago and it turned out that the wire going to the low beam had an internal break right before the plug to the bulb. I cut the old plug off, soldered a new one on, and haven't had a problem since. You can pick a new connector up at most auto part stores, and they can be crimped on if you don't want to solder.

If you have a multimeter you can check if you have 12v going to the plug. Also, with the headlights turned on, you can wiggle the wires going to the plug, if one is broken it will probably flicker.

I'm sure there's other things it could be to, but those are easy to check.
