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 1999-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Daytime Running Lights Are Prone to Burning Out
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problem
Average Mileage: 100,479 mi (20,000 mi - 168,000 mi)

Running lights have been replaced twice with melting of the plug-in socket.To stop this from happening when replacing the bulbs use silicone to seal all the edges on the outer covering. Moisture inside the lights cause the bulbs to blow and the socket to melt. Seal around the light and no more problem.
