We establish existence and localization of positive solutions for general discontinuous problems for which a Harnack-type inequality holds. In this way, a wide range of ordinary differential problems such as higher order boundary value problems or \(\phi\)-Laplacian equations can be treated. In particular, we study the Dirichlet–Neumann problem involving the \(\phi\)-Laplacian. Our results rely on Bohnenblust–Karlin fixed point theorem which is applied to a multivalued operator defined in a product space.
