Drl led
Hey guys ordered a 54 smd led 6000k bulb for my limited with factoy hid. It took about 20 mins to install it as the side where airfilter is located you had too take off the air nozzle. Once installed it worked and looked good compared to the factory yellow light. Lol.
Anyway drove the car and when I went in the car park the hid light came on but only one of the led bulb was working. Lucky it was in the drivers side and the easy part to take off. Anyway it had somehow short circuited. The led bulb still work when its on drl but as soon as the headlight hid is on it goes off and only the other side works. Its under warranty and I can get a replacement but I'm just wondering what went wrong? Any feedback would be good.
Cheers, Rey

Re: Drl led
If I'm correct BOTH DRL's should turn off when the HID's come on.

Yep, the DRLs should not be on at all with the HIDs.

Re: Drl led
I have the same problem but the opposite.
I put in some LED DRL's, but after running for 10min they stopped working. I assumed they were overheating, so I put the original bulbs in. Now the DRL's do not work, but the low light DRL's work when the HID's are on which is normal.
I have checked the fuses and nothing is blown and everything works aside from the DRL's.
The DRL's have 2 modes, DRL mode when the headlights are off and low mode when the headlights are on.

Re: Drl led
Hey enforcer what brand led did you get? I bought mine off eBay n I sent the faulty one back. I got it from california. Yea both mine work on drl but only one on low mode when hid comes on. I unplug the two fuse for drl for now until I get the new led. :)
