General Maintenance & Repairs - Firebird DRL issue
06-14-2012, 09:46 PM
So I replaced both DRL bulbs in my Formula about 2 months ago. Started the car last week and one of them was out! I figure it has to be moisture getting to the socket...I'm sure a lot of Firebird owners, if not all of you, have had similar problems. Can anyone take a reference pic for me on where the problem likely lies and advice on how to seal the area from moisture better?

I had the same issue. Bought two brand new housings from GM, new pigtail connectors from Advanced, clear silicone to apply between the actual lense and the housing and di-electric grease to apply on the sockets and connectors. Haven't changed a bulb in 3 years now...

Can you pm me a link to that?
I have no clue what the part numbers are for the housings or I'd look them up on GMPartsDirect. Although after shipping I'm sure there are cheaper ways to get a hold of them.
