I have been having an issue with my 2008 Jeep Patriot. My starter malfunctioned two weeks ago and was replaced. I was told that there was a hole in my starter. That was two weeks ago. The other day, after putting my car in park and taking the key out of the ignition, my car continued to run making the noise as if I try to start the car while the car was still running. I took it to the dealer to look at. I was told that the HID kit that was installed on my car was causing an issue with the TIPM Module. It would need to be replaced for $600. I am not sure if this is right and if the issue with my starter could have caused the problem not the lights. Please help.
No how have you got them wired up? TIMP will monitor the lighting circuit and will shut off the lights if it draws too much current or too little current and that’s why some that have done this conversion complain of flickering.
my compass did the same thing and then i decided to unplug the lights real quick and called the company i got the kit from and they said i needed a low beam harness i ordered it tonight when it comes in i will let you all kno how the install was and if it fixed the problem

my 2008 patriot has hid's but they flicker. took it to a place where install hid's and told them my problem.they check the wiring and fuses and ground. they said i needed a compositor, they put it in and watched for any flickering.. 2min later the starter is trying to turn on while the car is running. we try it again with a different compositor and the same problem with the starter came up
