Daytime running lights no workie

2012 Overland, bought new, now 110K miles. Long story is one DRL blew out about 6 months into my ownership, passenger side. Normally I replace stuff in pairs but this was obviously a defective bulb and the driver's side isn't easy to get to so I just replaced the one.

A month ago I noticed that the driver's side was out. This is obviously a worn-out issue so I bought a new pair of LEDs, Sylvania 3157, and replaced both. Now the drivers side works but the passenger side does not. I tested the bulb with 12V battery power and it works. I cleaned the connector contacts, flipped the bulb over but still does not work.

I have no easy way of testing if the connector is giving 12V because the engine has to be running, transmission in gear and the parking brake released. Besides it worked before!

Re: Daytime running lights no workie

Sometimes you write something down and it makes you think of something else. I tried the old bulb again and it worked. So I replaced it with the new LED and now both DRLs work. Polarity of the bulb? Dirty contact that didn't clean up before?

Re: Daytime running lights no workie

Dumb question. How long had the LED bulb been out before you tried the backup bulb?
