Daytime Running Lights are Prone to Burning Out on Chevrolet Tahoe

The daytime running lights are prone to burning out. Our technicians tell us that the light sockets may show signs of heat damage but usually are OK. Always be sure to use the correct replacement bulb for the best life expectancy. The new bulb recommendation for 2000-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Daytime running lights keep burning out. I wonder replacing the bulb with a LED bulb would be better.

Day running lamps have burned out twice. Once at the mileage above one is burned out now at 200,000+
Day time running lights burn out on numerous occasions, replaced bulbs as they burn out
I replace a daytime running light at least 3 times per year. I see this on almost every chevy/gmc vehicle I pass on the road. Chevy should correct the problem.

I had several DRL bulbs burnout but the socket appears to be dry rotted. It is to the point that it is breaking, like crumbling apart when I tried to replace it today. My 2002 Silverado has the same issue. :(
Lights get loose and go out often.
I switched to bulb #3157 and only have had to change the bulb twice since 2003.
I have replaced the bulbs three times already. If someone knows how to "do it yourself", I'd appreciate directions. Tired of paying someone to replace a bulb.
I have replaced the daytime running lights 5 times and without fail, they burn out.
Daytime running lights burn on in 12 months or less
