One question, where are you guys mounting that orange resistor that gets "extremely hot"?
Niiiicee! Should be fun! Where are you putting those festoon LED bulbs? I don't recall my 2015 having any festoons, but I guess I could be wrong.

Nice, you'll like that kit a lot. Even though I was never one to use a plug and play HID kit, I actually ended up trying a xenon depot kit in my wife's 2015 Honda Odyssey which has halogen projectors. To my surprise, the output is VERY good for being in a halogen projector. Quality of the kit was top notch as well.I went with the 5,000K kit and love it!

Just FYI, for other experimenters. I've tried the Broview v8 LED's

They are superbright but have not had success getting them to stay on for more than 15 minutes in the 2015 model.

I've tried Resistors, Various Cancellors but no luck. I've even paralelled 15 watt bulb next to it to make the load exactly 50 watts but am guessing something in the LED electronics that throws off the BCM on the 15 model.

Had an idea...not optimal but might work...run straight off the battery and use an auxiliary switch?...not an electrical guy and wonder if that would rid the 15 flicker ghost.

Would work for sure!, but trying to keep it close to stock as possible.

there's two things I have not done that may fix it.
Tried a PWM canceller or flash the BCM to put fog lights to LED(like SRT or HA)

Can only image dealers look already for the flash request.....

Yes that would work, but like mentioned above that would be a LOT of screwing around not to mention extra wiring, and an ugly aftermarket switch inside. WAAAYYYYyyy easier to just simply plug in a anti-flicker module. One small box, plug and play, use all stock parts...cant beat that.

Looked at the space behind headlights and they must of changed something cause I feel there is more room for my hand then there was on my 14. Grabbing some latex gloves from work today to try and get them in.

The xenon depot website had those listed for the cargo area lights, but realized they're just 194's while doing the install.

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

Well, I spent a good amount of time doing this install yesterday. I added the Overland honeycomb grill, SRT fog lights, and xenon depot's 6500K HID kit for my lows. One of the most difficult parts of the install was getting the damn factory bulbs out. There were in there so tight it took all kinds of effort and many attempts. I've never removed bulbs from a car that were that difficult before. I'm extremely satisfied with the outcome. The fogs are really bright white but the pic doesn't capture it. I'm just praying this HID kit and bulbs last cause I don't want to have to through that whole install again!

I have one question... I noticed that there's a delay between the 2 low beam HID bulbs when they're turned off. One turns off, and the other takes another couple seconds to turn off. Is that normal?

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

^^^ That delay doesn't seem normal, or atleast I have never seen an HID kit do that. They are both instant off every time. I have a xenon depot kit in my wife's car and they both go off at the same time.
Are you using the supplied wire harness kit or did you just plug into factory and plugs? I did not use the harness as xenon depot said a benefit of there digital ballasts is that they do not have the very high startup draw that most kits have and there is no risk of harming your stock wiring or electronics. This was a huge plus to me as I didn't want to deal with the extra wiring. The kit works great!
Whichever method you used I would try the opposite. So for example if you installed using the harness, go ahead and install without and go directly to your stock wiring and connectors. See if that makes any difference.
