ok, so I took a closer look. they have 2 wires (1 white, 1 brown) coming out of each end of the ring. so 2 LEDs in the ring. 4 per light, 8 on both lights. Since I shouldn't have a ballast there in this case (LED angels don't need ballasts right?), it must be a wiring issue between the corner lamp and the LEDs. I think it's safe to assume that all 4 wouldn't have blown at once, so it must be some wiring thats come undone somewhere in there.

question- 35W HIDs run cooler than Halogens, correct? I would think that they didn't melt my wiring inside.
