HIDs not working! WTH.

HID not working in fogs. I have a 2015 Summit where I tried to install Hids. I have never had any issues in my other vehicles until now. I installed the HID on the right side and it only flickered for a second and never lot up. I checked all connections and even flipped the connectors, too. I gave up and reinstalled the halogen bulb which lit up instantly. What could be the problem?

Not an expert by any means, I do know some, not all 15s at least for LED fogs have to get an anti flicker module. Sorry, don't know it that applies to HID though

I had a similar problem installing OPT-7 LED fog lamp bulbs in my 2015 High Altitude. The driver, left side....No problem. Passenger, right side.....flashed every few seconds and then nothing. I then installed the anti flicker capacitor between the factory connector and the OPT7 driver that attaches to the bulb. Now its perfect. I cannot figure out why the left side didn't need the cap but the right side does. I hope this helps.

Re: HIDs not working! WTH.

What manufacturer of the anti flicker modules are people using?

I would vote this too, but they are showing unavailable and I'm not sure when they will be back in stock.
