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 best life expectancy.Google+

This the second time since new. The light plug itself shows signs of heat. Now I need to change out the plug.

My left light went out and when I replaced the bulb it still didn't illuminate! Was told that it would cost a couple hundred to repair (new wiring). I've seen several of these lights out on the same side of these models.

Left DRL went out and replace bulb 3 times and each time the bulb only lasted several days. I did note that the plug in had a burnish color.
