    Question rebuilding 2014, Headlight issues

    I am rebuilding a 2014 new style headlights and fender car, when i bought it it needed the font replaced including the driver side headlamp assembly and the connector plug rewired to the wiring harness, I purchased the headlamp and the plug from ebay and had the plug pinned and wired to the harness matching the passenger side. when the light was in place and turned on the led day time running lights are amber in color, the same as the turning signals on the bottom fog lights when signal is on or emergency flasher, the passenger side drl never turn an amber color, they are always clear. This is an ebay light so i thought the module/ballast could be wring, or the bulbs if that is possible. could it be a wring issue? is amber drl even an option in any headlamp like this? Any input or suggestion is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Don't have an absolute solution, but can tell you the DRL's are always clear/white. But you also have another issue... Why aren't the vertical portion (below the headlamp) of the DRL's lit? They should be on any time the upper DRL's are on, turning amber on the vertical portion during flasher/blinker operation. My guess... this is probably a wiring problem.
