HID relay flicker/clicking
I just installed HIDs in the low beams for my 2012 Laredo x with a relay harness. Both lights turn on no problem but when I start the jeep the relay makes a clicking sound and the lights begin to flicker... I tried and new rely and same result. Does anybody have an idea on how to fix this?????

Re: HID relay flicker/clicking

have you the relay kit for plug on the battery?

when yes then your Ballast are the Problem.

you need the relay kit. $20 roughly.

Do you have day time running lights?
I need to get an answer before I can give you more information.
If you don't then plug your HID's directly into the car's connectors and remove the relay. Then let us know what happens. The car can handle the HID's without the relay harness. They use less power than the normal halogens.

I have no relays but I do have capacitors inbetween the stock harness and the ballast.

Re: HID relay flicker/clicking
You said you had a relay harness and that the relay was buzzing. What do you have?
I'm sorry, I was refering to the setup of DBIRD16's setup.
The capacitors do go between the connector on the car and the Hid box, so you have that correct. So, do you or do you not, have a seperate harness that goes from the battery to connections to the lights?

Re: HID relay flicker/clicking
gt wk2. Are you having problems or you just saying that is the way you have installed your system? What you are saying is the correct way to setup these lights.
