2008 Chevrolet Malibu - headlights question

drivers side headlights, operate correctly with key fob
when car started with key, light doesn’t come on, i’ve replaced headlights, hi low, wire harness, relays, cleaned all grounds, talked to chevy , got schematics, i’m at a loss?

Headlights are controlled thru the body control module.

pressing the lock/unlock button on my wife’s key fob operates the high beam headlights on her 2012 Malibu. is your’s the same? Sounds like this is a low beam/drivers side issue only. which should help narrow it down.
