    Daylight Light went out, then back on...

    This weekend I saw my 2002 Escalade through a reflection of another car in front of me and noticed that one of the DLR lights was out. I didnt think anything of it and was going to replace it. I stopped at a relatives place and it was still out. Came home 3hrs later and it came back on. Is it loose? Or is a computer problem? Today its been on all day. Thanks!

    i'd guess a loose connection or bad wire if its only one side. maybe got wet then dried out? i like to use the dielectric silicone grease on all my electrical connections and when installing bulbs-seems to eliminate moisture and corrosion issues.

    Sounds like a loose wire somewhere. If not the wire try changing both bulbs as a set.

    Ok guys I have an answer to my problem. I just replaced them both and the one that was having the problem (bulb) was corroded. The bulb has two contact points and one of them was burned out.

    Just a note.. it was VERY easy getting to the bulbs, but what a pain in the butt it was to take out the bulbs!!! I had to have my wife help me hold back the clips so the bulb would pop out. I guess you could say those bulbs will never fall out!
