Low Beam Out

My passenger side low beam is out. Changed the bulb, not working. Looks like there is a short in the wiring. The dealer said 1200$ to replace the headlight module and an additional 600$ for the headlight control module. How can I trouble shoot this problem? Since other lights (high beam, etc) in this module are working fine, I think a simple fix will solve the problem. After all it is a light issue. Any suggestions (instructions, pics, or videos) on this would be really helpful.
Thanks all

Were they OEM or aftermarket bulbs?

They were aftermarket bulbs. But the issue is not with the bulb. How can i trouble shoot what is wrong with the low beam circuit? Is there a fuse for this circuit? If so where is it located?

I would start by checking fuses and headlight switch knob. check for loose wiring also.

Do you know where the fuses for the headlight is located? Inside the glove compartment there are a bunch of them, but they do not like they are for the headlight. Thanks
