I had same problem. I replaced the connector and wire tail as there was a crack in the connector where the bulb connects to the wires. Before you replace this try to clean the contacts for the bulb. I suggest buying this part from a salvage (if you have to)in case this does not fix the problem, most places will not take electrical parts back. Good luck! By the way, Mine was the passenger side which I was told is common in that year.

Answerthe connector idea is great. you can be sure of the bulb by switching it with the one that works. AnswerCheck the interior fuse panel. Some vehicles use a separate fuse for each headlight.

Why does the driver's side low beam headlight on my 1995 Ford Explorer LTD not work and I have already replaced the bulb?

If the bulb is in fact a working bulb, and the passenger side works, then I would assume the problem lies within the driver side socket. This is possibly due to corrosion or something similar restricting the contact between bulb and socket.
