    Gm has a voltage problem on those bulbs. The original was a 3157, if I am not mistaken. To fix it we created the 4114 bulb to handle the heat and voltage issues caused by their electrical design.
    Thanks for the info! I'll remember that when mine go out in the next couple of weeks.

    It is because they are in parallel and not series that one can go out and leave the other lit

    It's not that big of a deal to change them on the Silverados, I just feel like these bulbs shouldn't be going out on every truck I see. Has anybody tried LED's as the driving lights instead of incandescent?
