Is the access panel in the wheel well still there? If not, corrosion has gotten into the brown connector.

I see this is an HID kit. What brand did you go with and is it using a relay or canbus ballasts? If neither, then I recommend removing it entirely for another kit or get a relay. Also if your harness on the driver side is broken for some reason, then a relay would help with since you only need a power signal from one side. Usually this side is the driver side but you could make it work with the other since that side is working.

There are corrosion cleaner sprays that you can buy at an auto parts store or google
corrosion cleaner spray for electronics.
You will want to try to find that access panel at a self serve junkyard from a wrecked Dart. As far as I know, it is not available as a separate part from a dealer.

You remove the brown connector and spray into the female terminals. If they are really green with corrosion, take an old toothbrush and scrub as much away as you can. Then follow with compressed air. Test to see if the headlight now works. If so, pack the connector with silicone dielectric grease.

It is but I don't remember the part number. I bought like 8 of them because I did HID installs for my friends.
