2010 Mazda 3 daytime running light driver side doesn’t work changed bulb checked for power have no ground, ran test lead to battery - to bulb and bulb works. Checked wires for break couldn’t find any
When you ran a test lead from the battery, did you run a separate ground wire to the bulb? If yes -- confirming no ground from the original lamp connection -- try inspecting the body ground closest to the lamp: Remove, clean w/ wire brush or steel wool (both the connector and the nut/bolt holding it to the body), then try again. If still no luck, check ALL the body grounds in the engine compartment. If there's still no ground, try using a "quick splice connector" to connect a grounded bypass cable to the original grounding cable, near the lamp. (These connectors can be tricky. Instructions say you don't need to strip the sheathing on the cables, but I usually cut the sheathing with a knife to make sure there's a good connection.)
Regarding HID lamps: for running lights, do the main headlights come on w/ reduced power, or is there a separate lamp? If it's a main headlight, maybe there's an issue w/ a step-down transformer, or whatever system is used to dim the lamp.

there are 2 vaccum hoses going into the intake. the larger one on top has a spring clip holding it and if you look under that you'll see a smaller one with a check valve. mine was disconnected. plugs in under the larger one.
