HID foglight shuts off after 15 minutes issue

I purchased a XenonDepot PWM HID Kit Module to use with my new 35W HID fogs on my 2015 Grand Cherokee to prevent flickering. I installed only the right side so far and I now get no flickering but the bulb will shut-off momentarily for a few seconds every 15 minutes or so. Does anyone know what would cause this? I have no warning lights on the dash, either.

Re: HID foglight shuts off after 15 minutes issue

I solved this by putting a traditional canceller in as well. so 2x modules plus HID

Hi,
Do you have one of our kits installed? What year is your Jeep?

Unfortunately, no. It's a DDM which in the past hasn't given me problems worth other cars. If this canceller doesn't work, I'll every to buying another HID kit from you.

HID foglight shuts off after 15 minutes issue

Did you buy the DDM "Plus" HID kit? Or their standard kit? The plus kit works perfectly in 2015's, no extra boxes needed. It's literally, plug and play.

+1. If you get the kit antsjeep is referring to you don't need any sort of pwm module or error canceller.
