Answer
Hi John,
The headlamp bulb filaments are each independently wired and come from the integrated power module on the back side of which are a number of multi-wire plugs. The gray, 26-pin  plug is where the four wires to the headlamp bulbs come from. Here are the assignments:
pin 6 white/dark green left low beam
   7 white/light blue right high beam
  15 white/light green left high beam
  22 white/tan         right low beam
The wire colors should be identical at the bulb sockets. The ground wires are black/light blue at the bulb sockets
So see whether you are getting 12v as requested at the C7 plug and at the bulb sockets. There are some connectors along the way which might be at fault or the wires could be flakey. Otherwise there is an issue inside the integrated power module (the part called the front control module).
So let me know what you find.
