Hey guys, NIkki here posting for some help/advice!! I had gotten my headlights done early last year. I got them installed by someone who gets their lights from lighting trendz. later down the year, the lights started acting up and they would flicker etc. so i took it somewhere else and had to pay again for labor only. the second place i went to ordered a new set of lights from lighting trenz and isntalled them for me, ever since.. the car has been dying on me randomly and the lights turn off even when the car isnt on. I thought it was the batter cuz i hadnt gotten a new one since i got the car. but even with the new battery, the car will die eventually. I dont have a kill switch in the car and i think that this is possibly what is causing the issue. but idk. also, the car tended to turn off an
d turned back on while i was driving and then the battery light came on. which i thought was F-CKINg scary lol... any thoguhts???

I posted two pictures. the first one is when they flicker and the second one is when the lights turn on when the car is off.

Thanks in advance,

-Nikki

The lights might be throwing out some heavy magnetic field interfering with something electrical.

Some added LED lights have interfered with the car's TPMS Signals.

Try disabling/unplugging all the added lights & see if the stalling stops.

Hi Nikki, Have you looked at the website Lighting Trendz / Installation / Sales / LED Lighting
Maybe if you called them for advice they would be more helpful.

My daughter has a 2010 SRT8 I'll ask if there was anything special that was done for her car for the Lights to be off. I know she likes to race with them on and she can turn them on and off. OK Kate let me know her friend who installed the lights is on Insta @ evil_392 and he installed the Lighting Trendz Halo's on her Challenger.
He said he could help with the problem

See this video... the load of the add on lights may be too much for the stock circuits, BCM, etc.
It's the job of the installer to know this and make sure it works properly.

Good info. Personally, never been a fan of using existing circuits for any aftermarket lights (halos, underglow etc) All my Halo/RGB DRL installs use their own circuits/relays/inline fuses, and can be powered on independently never had any issues with my 07 RT or Hellcat.
