I had that problem with only one though after I put my BL on. One of my wires got cut somehow. I just soddered it back together. I can't spell that word, but I hope you know what I'm trying to say haha. Look for any split wires?

soldered. lol.




I'd say both your bulbs are toast. That 'on' indicator on the switch wouldn't light up unless it's got juice flowin' to the bulbs.

If you have aftermarket bulbs, (like blue or white or something) sometimes the watts don't match up. and it happened to me too. I just had to order the new wiring harness off ebay cuz the wattage of the new bulbs was too much for the stock wiring. Cheap and easy to fix

How are your bulb pigtails? Damaged at all? How's that wiring behind the pigtails??


Once again....since you are getting the 'on indicator' on your switch, then there's power getting to the switch, and there's power going to the bulbs.

Take a test light to check your pigtails to see if there's power actually going to them. Might be your switch that's the problem too.

either that or its the wiring harness' and you bought bulbs with wattage that was too high for the stock wiring harness'. Also if you touched your fingers on the bulb itself when installing, sometimes it shorts them, most of the times actually
