new and having light issues

I have a light issues in the day I turn the lights on and all good. Now at night is a diffrent story. Only the drivers side headlight and pasanger side fog light work. Then today its happening all the time. I have checked the grounds that are in the front ( 3 in total unless im missing some ). Took them off cleaned them then add dye electric grease to them and reinstalled. Also did the 2 in the back still messed up. I hope the lcm is not bad. Any other ideas before I blow about $500 on a lcm? any help is welcome and tried.
