Installed HIDs..

I installed my HIDs from DDM tuning and am having some problems with them. They don't always want to shut off whenever I turn them off. If they do turn off the first time, they usually flash for about ten seconds before fully going out. Any ideas why they're doing this? Also, how would I disable the feature where my low beams flash on when I unlock my jeep? Thanks!

Did you use a wiring harness? Or plug into the OEM harness? With the type of headlight circuit in the Grand Cherokee you will have issues without the harness.

The circuitry in the WK wont work with the HID..not sure if its current draw, resistance or what.

I got mine to work by using a relay attached to the headlight wires.

If you are using HID in your low beams don't be an a$$ and adjust your headlights.
