They probably aren't grounded.

You get under the running boards right under the lights. there is a little plastic housing. pull this housing down and change light bulb is that easy.

If you go to the parts store they will tell you, and since your there you can also buy them.

I hope your referring to the light bulbs. If so, I think they are the #194 mini bulbs. Your Local Parts Store will be able to verify this info.

You have to take the whole front console off including all the plastic moldings, and finally get to the dash board. You can find the lights bulbs behind it. It took me 3+ hours to get this done. good luck.

The daytime running lights are connected to the bright lights. It just reduces the power for the daytime runners.

If the night running lights have failed the bulbs should be checked. Find the bulb housings and remove the parts. After the bulbs are replaced check the lights.

Remove the tail light housing and replace the bulbs.

To fix faulty daytime running lights on a 1996 Chev Suburban, check if the bulbs are blown. If so, replace it. If the new bulbs are blown immediately upon replacement, check the wiring running to the headlights.

If the blubs and fuses are good try looking at the wires going to the boards ck. the plugs under the truck the wire for the right side is at the back wheel and wire for the left side is at the front wheel

Fuse, brake switch, bulbs. Replace whatever the problem is. There is no way to know without being hands on. Bulbs most likely answer.

Cheapest returnable answer is to remove the bulbs

Have you checked the bulbs for the licence plate lights ? Maybe they are both bad .

A blown bulb. Check fuses and then start replacing the bulbs one by one.

Back track on your connects and ground wires. I bet that does the trick. If not test your sockets and fuses. fasttony46@yahoo.com

When daytime running lights do not work, it means the bulbs may have burned out. It could also mean the fuses have failed or there is a short in the wiring.

vehicles equipped with day time running lights are designed to have the running lights on when the vehicle is running in gear.the only time you can change that is by turning on the headlights, or turning off the ignition. some running lights go out when the transmission is put into park. ( the only way to change that is by manually disabling the lights, like cutting wires, or breaking bulbs)

Start with checking the bulbs, then the fuses. In most vehicles the brake lights and siganal lights and running lights are separate circuits. If the fuses and bulbs check okay check the wiring feeding the rear of vehicle.

The left brake light works the right brake light doesn't and the bulbs is good
