Headlight Circuit? Both headlights burned out, using brights for now. on 2007 Nissan Sentra

Hello, Both of my headlights went out at the same time, and I was told it could be the circuit and it would cost $400. Any other ideas, cheaper options? The brights still work fine. Could it be a fuse?

Look in owners manual at fuses and see if each low beam is fused! Most likely dimmer(cluster)switch. Could be 2 blown blubs but not likely. Has it been looked at by a mechanic?

take bulbs out and check for power and ground at the socket if you have both then the bulbs are blown but if not I agree with #2
