So I swapped out my OEM halogen lights for brand new OEM LED headlights on my '18 JLUR. They work when my Jeep is in "run" mode (halos don't work because the wire harness doesn't have the 4th wire to power them). HOWEVER.... as soon as I start my Jeep, the headlights flicker and shut off.

Am I missing something? I thought they would be plug and play and work with no issues.

Picture is proof that they work when Jeep is off

You need to have it programmed to accept LED.

So you are now everyone's best friend!

And I would start with having the Jeep flashed to recognize the LEDs through a dealer or programmer.

When I had my JK I swapped out my headlights and fog lights to LEDs and everything worked flawlessly, so it's pretty annoying if the fix for my issue is getting my Jeep flashed at the dealership!
