2012 wrangler headlights stopped working

I have a 2012 jeep jk and I replaced my stock headlights with Hellas. I've had them in for a few days and tonight they just shut off when I was driving. I'm wondering if it's just a fuse or if anyone has any idea what it might be?

could be a fuse, why didn't you check it as soon as it happened


Anyway when putting new fixtures in with normal type lamps instead of LEDs it's wise to run better wires directly from the battery. Use a relay wired to original harness to control it. Put a fuse in new wires.

Do the Hellas come with their own fuse? The OEM headlights have no fuse.

OK. That means there is no fuse to check.

What is the wattage of the new lights? If they are more than stock, the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) may have shut them off to protect the wiring, thinking the extra amperage is a short.
