low beam wont come on

ok i changed out my stock bulbs a while back to dongtran's bulbs. i just noticed a few days ago that my low beam doesnt come on when i start my bike. i figured the housing wasnt seated right so i pushed the back of it in and the bulb came on so its ot the bulb. after pushing the housing in it would stay on a few seconds but then it would go out and i would have to push it in again. anyone ever have this problem?? i dont know how long it has been going on because i always ride with high beams on. now if i dont use high beams i have no lights at all

here is what you got to do unplug the headlight bulb
take the bulb out inspect the black housing itself
i had one with w melted prong before even though i was using
a stock bulb then inspect the plug with its wiring
keep me posted bro
