Led headlights cutting out?!?

Sooo, im not sure what the deal is with this because the driving reason behind me getting JW's was because my HID's kept cutting out. Now one of my JW's are flickering and cutting out so i ask the forum community, whats the deal?? And when i flip on the high beams, both lights fire, when they're not on, only one led lights up.

Sounds like one of the wires in your harness connection is loose. Happened to my wife last week.

I just installed KC LED headlights this week and one light kept going on and off even though the connector was tight and the connector lock was on. I taped the connector and it works all of the time now.

It's possibly a loose harness or it may be the CANbus flicker program.

I recommend you check out one of these: Headlight Revolution Anti-Flicker Harness for LED Headlights | JeepsonTrails.com

They're well made, waterproof / water resistant and will also stop the flickering issue in general. Use JEEPSONTRAILS in the coupon area to get a good discount.
