Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

I would suggest you try the diode dynamics anit-flicker module for their 2015 specific ram/mopar kit. As folks have mentioned, the 2015s seem to be different and I am not sure if xenon depot's stuff is up to snuff. After a failed attempt with a xenon depot hid kit (I had the same symptoms you describe with their hid kit), I got the diode dynamics hid kit with the huluxtek ballasts and anti-flicker module. No extra relay harness--just plug and play. A bit more money, but they work like a champ. Also, diode dynamics customer service is top notch.

I realize you want to stay with your leds--seems like the anti-flicker module should work with those. If it does not, just order the rest of the hid kit.

At this point I am sticking with the Xenon Depot parts because if they dont work then the bulbs are defective and Im going to return them.

Just a side note, but many people are saying that the electrical system on the 15 is much more particular than the 14. How is that conclusion being deduced? There are members with 15s that have no problems with aftermarket lighting. Why are these failures being attributed to the Jeep rather than the aftermarket lighting kits? I am not yet convinced the kits failure is due to the Jeeps electrical system.

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

probably because Xenondepot has an excellent reputation for selling only the best products. Philips makes world class products as well and by some is considered to be the best. FWIW....the Philips led bulbs didn't work in my 2014...BUT the xenondepot led bulbs work perfect. FCA/Chrysler has been known to have touchy electrics for as long as Ive had them...starting back in 2006.

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

I've got an update on this. I've been viewing some other forums where 2015 Ram owners are experiencing the same bulb shut off issue. They have listed a company that makes a decoder module which is supposed to fix the issue. So far several Ram owners have reported positive feedback and made confirmation that the modules do indeed work. I've not gotten the chance to try yet but they do sell the decoders separately. I've been told they would fix our issue.

Wondering if there's still any interest in this from anyone since the thread hasn't been active or seen positive resolutions

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

Proper function has been confirmed. The LEDS do work on the 2015 GC but they need both a relay harness and Canbus unit to function properly. All parts can be and were obtained through Xenon Depot to ensure proper fitment.

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

Guessing that means you had to drill out the back of the dust caps?

I didn't reinstall the caps, I've never had an issue on my other Jeep running HIDS without the caps.

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

Whoooa...whole loota anger going on here. Man I miss the old days of a couple hundred of us using each other as guinea pigs then figuring out what we need HAHA...

I have been buying from Steve and the guys at XD for over 5 years. Have a volt kit on lows/fogs still going strong for the guy that bought it from me. Whenever I had an issue, we resolved it.

As for running LED's on headlights without canbus/relays, well you did that to yourself. It is called the search function. Same with HID's...one takes less, the other more power. Adjust accordingly.

I just ordered 20+ bulbs from them and plan on getting the LED H11's once I sack up and spend the $$ on a quality bulb...still stings every time!

Re: XenonDepot LED Headlight Bulb Issues

If I get a HID kit for my 14 JGC running lights then another kit for the fog lights to match is hiding the ballistics in the front bumper a pain?
