DRL and brights issue with new LED

Hello, I just bought a Jeep JK unlimited Wrangler Rubicon 2010 which appears to be manufactured in Canada, so I'm new to the jeep culture (but always wanted a jeep) I'm trying to upgrade my headlights to LED but am experiencing flickering issues and an issue with the brights being on without the lights being turned on. The LEDs I bought have the DRL option which may require that I run wiring to the connector for that. My jeep already has the DRL on the stock lights and I figure this must be why the brights are on when the lights are in off mode. The new lights work when I turn on the light switch, but I don't want to have to remember to turn them on in the daytime, then turn them off when I shut off the vehicle as there is no warning if I leave my lights on....any help would be great. I've heard that using the Flashcal to turn off the DRL, then running the wiring from the fuse box should work, but I'm not sure since my vehicle was made in Canada...

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out the JK forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.


In the mean time, I just like to say . . .

Are these LEDs aftermarket or non-Mopar?
If they are then you'll need a wiring harness with a relay to stop the flicker.
Never mind, for a 2010 LED wasn't a factory option yet, so they will need a harness and a relay pretty much no matter what.

Welcome! Hope you get the answers you need. I'm trying to figure out the wiring on my DRL lights as well.
