Hi,

I bought an HID kit for my low beams in the fall... Got the Dipped beam error while driving on my way home in the dark and quickly switched the fogs on to get the rest of the way home. At lunch the next day installed my normal bulbs back in. I've searched online over the fall and through winter and found this website which has been very useful so I've come aboard! I then bought a relay kit and I also bought a "Anti-Flicker" harness. Before I go back and re-install the HID kit this spring, do I still need to buy 2 resistor kits or will the Flicker harness do the same thing?

Flicker Kit:

Thank You,

nop, any "anti flicker" "warning cancellor" will not work (they are capacitor and not resistors) As said in the previous pages in here they never worked for the 2012 ford focus and will never work, you need the 2 resistances of 50w/6ohm

Here is the link for the resistors you need: http://retro-solutions.net/product-i...hm-pid601.html

Dont forget to order (2) as they come as single unit and not as a pair, Also choose "universal plug and play" in the connector type. Follow my wiring diagrams on page 1 of this thread to know how to wire everything, its pretty easy and simple.

Sorry for this post before I edited it. Didn't see your link. I'm there now.

EDIT AGAIN: Wow. One course in Church Slavonic decades ago, and here I am slogging my way through modern technical Russian. From my understanding of what I see, these are not yet available. Future product.

I'm perfectly willing to be wrong. I'm getting about every 3rd word of that website at best.
