2011 DRL Replacement Issue

Hey guys,

I just replaced my 2011 JGC Overland's standard (yellow) 3157 Daytime Running Lights with a pair of Aaron's 3157 60w LEDs. They didn't illuminate at first so I tried flipping them thinking it might be a polarity issue. That still didn't work. My next thought was that it could be a fuse... but the fuse is not blown. I replaced it anyway just in-case, but still no dice.

I tried switching back to the old bulbs so I would have something rather than nothing, and now the old bulbs don't illuminate either. Does anyone have an idea of what the issue could be?

Thank you.

Re: 2011 DRL Replacement Issue

Please don't take this wrong because I did this when I did mine so this could be it. The DRL will only come on with the vehicle running and in Drive, Neutral, or Reverse. The will not come on if the Emergency Brake is applied either. Get someone to sit in your GC with the brake applied so it doesn't roll away then check your stock bulbs.

If you already did all of that, my bad sorry!
