Did you try turning them around in the sockets? LEDs are a diode, and only work one way, though it's unlikely it happened with all of them....

Sounds stupid, but the DRLs on GMT800s only come on when shifted out of park. Are you checking for illumination while in park? or when shifted into R/N/D?

Have you put the regular bulbs back in to see if they still work?
