    My left DRL bulb (orange bulb) does not turn on with only the DRL's on. But it does come on when I turn my lights on. And my left turn signal hyper-flashes. I haven't tried replacing the bulb as I just noticed it this morning. Any ideas what is causing this and how I can fix it? Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like either (a)bad bulb (b) bulb is not making contact somewhere. (C) blinker fluid is low

    I gotta be completely honest, I had to google "blinker fluid." You had me going for a minute. I'll definitely check options (a) and (b) before checking option (c). :) Thanks for the suggestions.

    Side story..my wife was at Walmart a while back and asked what I needed. I told her we needed blinker fluid for her jeep...she went and asked for it.

    That bulb has two filaments in it. One for DRL's and one for parking lights. The DRL is brighter than just your parking lights. The DRL filament is toast. You need a new bulb.
