Hello, I just upgraded my 2015 Dodge Charger R/T headlight bulbs to 9012 LEDs. At first the new LEDs work with no issue but then randomly both lights cut out for 2 seconds or so and then back on again. It does this a few times at random before finally cutting off for good. I then have to turn off my engine and back on to get the lights back on. I did buy the anti-flicker module and tried with and without but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Have you put the oem bulbs back in? I know the BCM is fussy about the bulbs had to have mine replaced because I tried to go HID with antiflicker. passenger side would not turn off after that. The BCM may be not getting a wattage use from the leds so turns them off. (My best guess here). They can reprogram the BCM at a shop or try the dodge dealer.

Yeah after a bunch of research it just seems the newer dodges do not like the LEDs. When I would remove the anti flicker canbus the symptoms would get way worse. Some people were able to make it work and a lot of people were not (like me). I ended up returning the LEDs and settling for something way less headachy (Philips 9012 CrystalVision ultra bulbs). It is not as bright close range and not quite as white but a lot better than the OEM bulbs and at distance actually slightly better than LEDs as LEDs are actually not as effective in a projection headlight setup. Oh and did I mention a lot cheaper?!

I just installed HYLUX 2A88 CANBUS HID MORIMOTO 6500K 9012 in my car today, WELL here's what happen: Lights are bright and WHEN working they are wonderful.. I was coming home tonight and the lights went OFF and I ALMOST GOT IN A WRECK so i Pulled over into a parking lot turned the car off and on a few times and nothing, waited 10 mins with the car off and with everything off, Turned it back on and the lights came on, so headed to home and they shut off and back on a few times b4 i got home. Sat in my driveway and one or both will turn off for a few sec's then back on, and sometimes won't come on unless i turn the car off and wait 10 mins. So right now waiting to hear back from the company i bought them from to see whats going on.. On a note, iv'e tryed cheaper LEDS & HID's until now and not sure why our 15's so so darn picky with lights, Iv'e been using both in other cars iv'e had with not one problem. OH ALSO THE CANBUS HAS A BLUE WIRE COMING OUT OF IT TO BE GROUNDED, I DID GROUND BOTH OF THEM TO A BOLT THAT ALREADY HAS GOUND WIRES TO THEM, ANYONE KNOW IF THEY HAVE TO BE GROUNDED BY THEM SELFS WITHOUT OTHERS WIRES ON THE SAME BOLT OR NOT?

[ Ok Update: ] I talked to the company i got the HID kit from, WELL funny thing is MY CAR IS IN THE TOP 5% that needs a relay harrness, and more parts to make my HID's to work without cutting off, go figure lol.. the guy i talked to said his 2015 charger is also one in the top 5% to. this is the kit you need for HID's or LED's. they work the same on both. they will keep the lights on at all times when needed and won't flicker or cut off and on ect, they are alittle pricey but work 100% with aftermarket hid's and led's:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Morimoto-2015-Mopar-Spec-9005-9006-9012-H10-Relay-Wiring-Harness-HD-Resistor/323795969866?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

and here is the info on them, I hope this helps out for someone else that is looking for help with hid's or led's installs. Good Luck..

The new Mopars: might be a great car, but when it comes to upgrading anything in the lighting system; it's nothing but a nightmare. Thankfully though after many attempts, the new Morimoto 15+ Ram Spec harness does the trick to keep an aftermarket HID system running smoothly. WILL WORK ON 2015+ Chargers!!!

Lamp Out: When upgrading to High Intensity Discharge lights on the 2015+ Mopar vehicles, the car's ECU senses a change in the resistance of the headlight circuit and cuts power to anything but the stock 9012 halogen bulbs after a few minutes in use. Good luck with basic "canbus" ballasts or other more conventional "canbus" harnesses. They wont work.

Calibrated: The 15+ Mopar Spec harness is properly calibrated to tame the canbus system on the new Mopar vehicles. Using a quad configuration for it's load resistors that's unique only to this harness in conjunction with a special anti-flicker capacitor and twin relays - the harness will absorb any pulsing signals emitted from the stock output for uninterrupted relay function. No flickering or pulsing!

Plug n Play: The layout of the harness makes it easy to install. With just a few simple connections, even your mom could set this thing up! Wire lengths are long enough to be used in everything from compact cars to SUVs and it's designed to be 100% plug and play (no cutting or splicing needed). It’s connections are explained in this video.

OEM Finish: Aside from being a technical masterpiece, it's also a work of art. With its braided TechFlex insulation, anodized and laser engraved relays, and 100% weather resistant dual relay pack to power the ballasts. it will surely look factory-fresh under the hood.

TECH SPECS
One Harness:Controls for Both Headlights
1x Input Trigger:9006/9012/H10/H11 Male
2x Ballast Outputs:9006 Female
1x 12V Power:Nickel-Plated Ring-Type
3x Grounds:Nickel-Plated Ring-Type

Good Luck and i'll keep you posted with pic's of how they look.

So would i just need to buy a 9012 HID kit and use this relay kit with it? I am having the worst time ever trying to find headlights to work in this car
