Kensun HID kit flickering issue

Hey guys!

About two days ago I installed the Kensun HID kit for my 2012 WK2. I got them working and thought I was good to go. Drove to work the next night and had ZERO headlights for a while, then flickering, then nothing back and forth. Very scary.

Yesterday I received my Kensun Anti Flicker kits. Installed one of those to the headlights but the connections dont really seem to match. i.e. Im having to electrical tape them together to keep them falling out. This sounds shoddy, but theres literally no other way to connect them. There's only one way to do this it seems but just doesn't seem like the right kinds of connectors to me.

That being said, I electrical taped them all in and last night after it was dark took it for a short test drive down my street. Right headlight seems stable, solid and not flickering. Left one seems much better but still not quite 100%. When I turn the truck off I get a flicker as it turns off, where the right side just drops out as you'd expect it to.

The instructions on these kits are AWFUL. REALLY bad. There are very tiny pictures and seems to be much more of a general guide than giving you specifics on the thing thats in the same box.

Ive been reading some of the posts on here and some people mention using relay harnesses. Is that what Im missing? Is that necessary? Is there going to be another HID part, and another and another as I go? Seems like these kits are definitely cool once they work but piss poorly packaged (one bulb came exposed with no plastic guard or foam packing surround) and again those awful instructions.

Any advice is mUCH MUCH appreciated. Im going to hold off installing the foglight kit til I get the headlights working 100% solidly with confidence, then Ill move to the others.
