Need some feedback on the issue I am experiencing with brand new Oracle Oculus. lights..

They work for the most part but the driver side is intermittently not engaging into high beam. There is no rhyme or reason. I sent it back to Oracle and they tested and found no issues. After discussing with the tech. the topic came up on the can-bus system and how it is quite possible that I need to flash the computer to see these as LED's . He stated it was more a problem with JK's but it is possible that I am seeing this on my JL. It is a new JLU 7/2020 . Do I need to have the dealer flash it to LED .. Or Do I need to purchase a Taser Lite to switch it myself and have it going forward for other possible upgrades. Not sure worth the investment since I dont see myself doing large upgrades. .

Just was little confused about the inability to switch to high beams had anything to do with the CAN-BUS. I get no errors
Thoughts and suggestions are welcome.. Thanks

So you had Halogen OEM and bought their plug and pay with Halos using the fuse tap?

I sent @ORACLElights a DM about flashing the system to read the lights as LED despite them being plug and play. Didn’t hear back.

I’m wondering what affect if any it would have as well. So far mine work with no flash but I’m getting a Tazr for other items too.

Good luck.

I was experiencing flickering and intermittent issues with the high beams with my Oracle Oculus headlights. I set headlights to LED using a Tazer and it fixed the issue 100%. 2018 JLU Sport with halogens stock.

As many others have said, it’s totally worth the money to pick up the Tazer if you’re modding your Jeep at all. I also installed Rubicon fenders with LEDs and it worked perfectly to get the fender running lights set up the same as stock.

yes I have halogen and went to the Oculus at first it was working fine then it started to be intermittent with driver side high beams. It didnt make sense that it could be the can-bus system.
After discussion with he tech at Oracle the idea came up about flashing the can-bus to LED. He did say that while it isnt common on the JL it was more an issue on JK's but I guess it is a crap shoot.
So I will probably purchase a Taser mini. I dont think the lite will allow me to program the Lights.

the dealer isn’t really allowed to do it, because what they have to do is set the sales code and then update the BCM. The sales code is specific to the Mopar lights.
