Thanks to everyone who tried to guide me in my quest to have my led headlights stop flickering. If you followed the thread you read that I had tried many different canbus cancellers and resistors. I even combined these in different combinations with no luck. Then I thought maybe it was just the vehicle (alternator/generator) battery, grounding problems etc. Well... After calling many different local companies I finally found a place that thought they knew what would possibly stop the flicker. The idea was another set of canbus cancellers... I called the mfg in TX and asked that company what they thought. The man told me they had never tried them on this vehicle or the jeep counterpart. I ordered a set either way. They work! Zero flicker. Just like the engine is off on both high and low beams. So, If you are looking at upgrading or are having this issue right now with leds's? I'll give a link to the harness. They don't sell on ebay, amazon or anywhere else I could find. You will have to source them locally at a distributor or a custom shop like I did. Again thanks to everyone who lent some help. It's nice not to have the flicker anymore. https://arc.lighting/product/all-in-one-harness-h13-set/

well done finding these,

there actualy called " LED bulb decoders " inside the unit is a resistor for the CANBUS and a capacitor for controlling the PWM voltage, ( they are the same as the TRS units ).

Hello, im new to the forum, I own a Dodge nitro 2009, 3.7, v6 and Im also interested in changing mi headlight bulb to led. I Bought 2 set of headlights but the sellers did not told me of the can bus system and I plug them directly to the headlights but, they turn on, but did not make changes low and high beams. Do you think those cable will fix that problem?
Thank you...

No i doubt the resistors will change anything, i think you have bought the wrong type of bulbs,
can you post a pic or link of the bulbs you have ?

Whatever bulbs you decide on the link I gave earlier will solve the issue. I decided to upgrade to bulbs with more lumens a few months back and still no flickering.. ALL IN ONE HARNESS H13 SET - 20132 -

do you have problems with the bulbs flickering, or is it a high and low beam issue ?

I do. I've installed two different led headlights since I got that harness and it works on both. You have to call them and order them direct At least I did. They are aware of the fact that they work on our vehicle as well.. ALL IN ONE HARNESS H13 SET - 20132 -

I'm not really sure what you are trying to say. The harness is designed to fit H13 headlight bulbs. These bulbs are both high and low beam bulbs. Unless you installed the harness wrong or have a short/shorts in wiring these are plug and play.
