Hello Mark,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

You will want to start at the remote by checking for power/ground and the same again at the connections for the light, in most cases it is a missing power or ground which can be due to a bad, poor, dirty, loose, disconnected connection, sometimes due to a melted/shorted wire as well.

If receiving all power and ground to the light then you would need o disassemble it for further diagnosis of the problem being internal at that point.

Thank you!
- Joe
