Broken wire after splice?
Find the running light wire use a jump-it or another 12volt source and see if it lights up. If it doesnt light, you may have a broken wire closer to the unit. Led's normally dont burn out or break easily.
My guess is a bad connection/splice/ground or wired to the wrong wire you thought was the running light. (not doubting you, just covering the bases!)
