New track lights won't light up...

last month

Greetings, gang! Got a real head-scratcher, here. I installed a three-fixture Patriot track light today, and now the halogen bulbs will not light up. I have tested the system and find 124 volts AC to each fixture where the bulb plugs in. No issues with installation or wiring.

Each GU10 50W halogen bulb has continuity through the contacts, and each registers 22 to 23 ohms of resistance. Each bulb plugs in properly and seems to have a good fit.

But they will not light up. I have triple-checked all tests and readings, and found each to be consistent.

I have power, I have ground, I have good bulbs, but no light.

Any ideas or suggestions?
