usually I only see this in older Maximas, but the problem is most likely in the switch at the steering column. it has separate connectors for L/R and low/high beam in the switch, and one of them can become dirty and stop functioning.
it can also be that the low beam filament on the bulb has gone out.. I know some of the 5th gens have HID and some don't, and I'm not sure whether it's high beam, low beam, or both... but those are the two most common culprits.. bad bulb and bad switch on the steering column.
