TLG Anti-Flicker Harness

I Ordered one on Jan 5th and still haven't gotten it.

Sent TLG 2 E-mails before I Heard Back.

They are Short-Staffed and Behind on Orders...on top of that, they are Redesigning the Harness and making it better, ect...

So if anyone is thinking about getting one, and you don't get it and can't get in-touch with TLG, this is the Reason.

Does redesigning mean the first one doesn't work?

Here's what they said to me:

Sorry for the delay, we have been totally swamped AND short-handed at the shop. We are currently modifying the design of the harness to work better based on customer feedback and we are building them right now. As soon as your order comes up in the queue it will ship out immediately and you will get email updates. Sorry for the delay, this has been a very popular product and we build each one by hand in house.

It's actually really easy to put them on their own Circuit, totally Separate from the Jeep Harness / System.

I've been doing some research and I have a few different size caps to try. There's a good radio supply house in town and the old guy behind the counter knows quite a bit so I don't have to deal with the counter monkeys at Radio Shack who give you a blank stare when you ask about electrolytic capacitors.

Is that the product that was sold? If it works ok, cut off the shrink wrap and lets see what's inside, it can be rebuilt better after we know.

Looks a-lot like a pair of axial capacitors, one for each circuit:

That's the product they WERE selling. Apparently there is a second generation one that is cleaner. OP please post photos of the harness when you get it please.

Great, post up photos. I'm curious about the quality of the second generation. The price is good and its a clean alternative to the complete re-wiring to the battery that other harness require.

Well...how can I put this Nicely?

TOTAL PIECE OF SHIT!! A Middle-Schooler on their First Day of Tech Class could do a better Soldering Job on these things.

1 was Broke out of the Box, I had to Re-solder it.

They are VERY Stiff, so the Slightest Bend is gonna Snap the Wire and again, you're gonna have to Re-solder it.

The High Beam still Flickers at Idle, and very Slightly with the RPM's off Idle.

Electrical Tape Wrapped around them...seriously? They were better off with the Heat Shrink like they Show in the Pic of them.

TLG should be ASHAMED at the Selling Price on these. At MAX, they should Sell them for $20. Or just Sell the List of Materials and let the Customer Build the Harness, they'd prob. come out better.

So all-in-all, these are a POS. I'm gonna E-mail them and let them know how I feel and see what they say.

Fair enough. I may decide just to go the relay route and use the headlight signals to drive those. It's more of a hassle but it'll work.

I also ordered from them last week, maybe I should cancel it and get hard wire in instead. The pick just don't look professional for at all.

Ok, Heard back from TLG.

They are Using Electrical Tape on them because they ran out of Heat Shrink, and their New Shipment hasn't come in yet.

They are still Short Staffed and Behind on Orders, which means they are Cranking these things out as Fast as they can, so essentially QC is gonna go WAY Down.

They Offered to Send me a New Set of Harnesses, but just left it at that. I Offered to them that they Send me Out a New Set of Harnesses, when I get them, I'll make sure that they aren't Broke, OUT OF THE BOX, and if the Quality is better on them, I'll keep them, then I'll Pay for Shipping of the Broke Harnesses back to them.

Haven't Heard back yet about the Exchange.

Ok, Unwrapped the Harness Today, and here's what is Inside:

Now...there is NO Flicker on Low Beam at or Off Idle. There IS Flicker on High Beam at Idle and if you Left Off the Gas, Off Idle, go figure...

Another Interesting thing is that the Voltage out of the OE Plug is 13.xxV, however...the Voltage out of THIS Harness Adapter is 12.xxV...I don't have the Exact Decimal Numbers, but there was a Solid 1V Difference.

It just looks worse the more you unveil. I would cut my loses and return these POS I wouldn't run the risk of a short in the wiring and either damaging the lights or an electrical fire. Those adapters are hideously put together.
