Help with driving lights

Hi all, just installed some Lightforce lights with a Lightforce loom on a 2012 JK. All is workin fine except the headlight I got the feed from wont go on high beam. Disconnect the feed and headlight back to normal. Has anyone else had the same problem?

The canbus system on the jk does not like added loads to the light circuit's did you tie into the wire to trip a relay?

And welcome!

The canbus might be freaking out with the switch in the line? If there off road lights find the accessory fuse and tap into that to power your switch if you want the lights to turn off when you turn the key off or tap into your 12v + after the fuse to use the lights with out having to have the key in it?

Do you think that confusing diode capasitor thing would fix it?
