Thanks, looks like it might be a problem with the TIPM. Turns out I'm 3 weeks out of warranty for electrical issues so time to hit the wreckers.
So did mine. The flicker was almost perfectly in sync with what I would expect from the computer pulsing power.Thanks for the idea bgall, but it is not acting like something is "shorting out". Its acting like the computer is doing it. The period the lights are on and off is exactly the same each time. Turning the switch to the off position and back on immediately starts the process over. It just seems too perfect to not be computer controlled.
I have a buddy that has this issue. He has tried HID, Trucklites and JW speakers and sill has the issue.Were your HIDs flickering, or flashing? This problem we have going on is the headlights only are going out, and they will come on for a split second, go out for 5 seconds, and flash again. They will do this 3 to 5 times and then stay off.
The timing of them going out is a consistent rhythm of flashes before going out completely.
I was wondering if going to HIDs would "fix/bypass" this problem? And I'm always looking for a good reason to upgrade!
You are correct.I did a little research the first time it happened and the JK doesn't have a fuse for the stock lights, they run off of a switch/chip thing in the TIPM which sucks for us.
Glad the aftermarket lights have in inline fuse that fixed your problem.
