Help With High Beam Problem (Driver Side Only)

Ok, so I just did my retrofit and everything was working great, until all the sudden while testing it out, my driver high-beam doesn't work anymore. I've check the ground, all the headlight 10A fuses in the engine compartment, all changed the connections for the solenoid, taken the bulb out to make sure the mechanism inside the projector is not stuck, etc. When I take that headlight and plug it into the connections on the passenger side, hi beams work fine, so I know it's not internal in the headlight/projector. What am I missing? Is there another fuse somewhere besides the 4 in the engine compartment for each individual hi/low beam? Please help! I'm going crazy looking for the problem!

what did you retrofit in there? this will help us help you troubleshoot this issue.

first off, take a multimeter and check to ensure you are getting something on the driver side when you turn the highs on.

I did the FX-R with morimoto ballasts and bulbs from the retrofit source. Used a multimeter and it's the same on both sides...wasn't sure of which settings to put it on when I checked it, but they both were the same at the connections, so I'm not sure where the problem is! Seems like if they're both reading the same, and I know the headlight/projector is good, that it should work.

Ok, just double checked the fuses and they're all good, again. I unplugged the H4 plug from the kit and hooked up my stock headlamp, hi and lo works perfectly. Have I ruled out everything but the relay? Does the relay even send the signal to the hi beams individually to each headlight?
