Can someone point me in the right direction for anti flicker modules

For my Phillip Ultinon LED bulbs I installed on the HA ? They worked fine for about a month but now once in a while one won't come on and I'm hoping one of those modules might solve my problem.

TIA

Re: Can someone point me in the right direction for anti flicker modules

I don't think an anti flicker module will solve your problem. The anti flicker modules are designed to deal with the varying voltage sent to the headlights that otherwise causes issues for hid/led kits designed to run on a stable 12v. It is my understanding the fog lights don't get the varying voltage and thus don't need the anti-flicker module (I am assuming the bulbs are in your fogs since you have a HA). Here are the diode dynamics modules in case I am wrong:

Not sure about the Ultinon's but the opt 7's come with a polarity reverser (i think that's what it is) and they are required some times to help with this type of issue.

I use the opt7's in 2 diff vehicles(2015 durango and 2014 GC) and I only needed to use them on my jeep...the durango didn't use them

Yes the 2015 will require anti-flicker module for the fogs for sure. The 2014s don't. I'm actually surprised yours worked normally for a while?!? The flickering should have started right away so that's kinda weird.
These are what I bought for my 2015 HA and they worked like a charm:

I had the same bulbs and one went out around 2 months...I ordered and installed the flicker harness....did no good..I even swapped bulbs to be sure it wasn't wiring.
Wasn't a total waste, I needed them for the srt fogs...they would not even light up until I put them on (engine running)

Yeah same here. With engine off, but ignition to on the fogs actually worked correctly. As soon as the engine was turned on is when they started working all weird. Basically what happened was as soon as you turned the fogs on they will both flicker on for literally one second and go off, then wouldn't even turn on even for a second after re-trying. After anti-flicker install they work 100% perfectly all the time.
