I recently bought Oracle LED headlight conversion kits for my 2014 Silverado. I bought both the low and high beam bulbs H11 and 9005. The installation was very easy, but when I went to turn them on to see how awesome it was gonna look; it didn't work. The DRL option doesn't work and I have to manually turn the light switch on in order to get the low beams on and that sometimes works. I can have them on at night and all of a sudden they turn off. I then have to turn on my brights in order to have night lights on when driving at night. This is so frustrating and I can't believe that Oracle hasn't taken this into consideration with the low voltage power requirement for LED bulbs. Is there some sort of relay I need or some other option?
Can anyone help me out?

I am installing two led pods on my rear bumper, 2016 silverado 1500. I want to splice these pods to the cargo lights & bed led lights I have so the inside cargo switch in my center council will turn them on and off. I'm looking for a model that would allow me to turn all 3 lights on and off without needing to be I'm park... Is that possible?
Appreciate and guidance!
Last week I noticed when driving into the garage, that one of my DRL/low beam lights was out. I have a 2015 with the halogen lights, separate high beams.
I first read some old posts on here about how to get at them. No problem, I bought a new set of H11 bulbs and went to replace them. I put the new bulb in the driver's side first since it is easier, the new bulb worked. (that old bulb still worked as well).
Then I go yank the air box out to get at the passenger side. put new bulb in. After reassembling everything I tested it out by turning on my headlights, and lo and behold, this brand new bulb does not light up. After inspecting the old bulb, I cannot see any sign of it burning out either, no black, nothing broken inside the glass.
So my question is, would there be anything I can easily check that would cause this if it is a wiring issue? I'm not terribly worried about it now since I do very little driving after dark and I will be taking my truck in for an inspection right before my 36 month warranty runs out in June. Just wondering if this has been encountered before. I don't want to make a habit of replacing bulbs only to find out they are not the problem. Replacing the passenger side bulb is not fun.
Putting together a little Light guide similar to what MotoMedic did for the Silverados. More details to come on this with swaps and some photos (Scroll down a few posts). (Yukon and Yukon XL Only Low, High, fog, license and back-up apply as GMC has more OEM LED handling the others). Some of these may apply to 2014 model year but the bulb size is different like the 2014 Yukons. Tutorial videos (Courtesy of CarCareKiosk and some random dude on YouTube) reflect as: * Chevrolet ** GMC Side Note: OEM HID Color is approximately 4200-4300K. LuciasMaximus and I are playing around with color matching the factory LED DRL. The factory LED DRL appears to be between 5500K-6000K color wise.
