Angry HELP OEM xenon lowbeam not working, checked bulb

HELP! my oem xenon lowbeams are not working, just got the car a week ago. before i picked it up i noticed some flickering when i would shift a little hard and the chevy dealership told me it was a bulb and they replaced it... 1 week later, it doesnst work at all. I checked the bulbs and they're fine, what else can it be and how to I test it. All help is appreciated

I would check the Ballast because they are known for failing.

It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.
