    So I bought a pair of rigid d series pods (4) and a bracket and installed them into my 2015 ram 1500. Looked great but when I went to try them out they all came on then the driver side 2 turned off immediately the would flash 2 times then stay off so I unplugged 1 of the lights on the dead side and I had 3 working. Basically anytime I plug in that forth light regardless of which one on the drivers side they shut off. Also I wired them direct into the factory fog wire. Any help would be great! I'm losing my mind

    The 15's do not play nice with anything other than halogen bulbs. Some have had luck using a canbus adapter on the driver's side only and getting hids/leds to work. Most bit the bullet and bought either enlights or retroshops relay system. Not sure if they have been used on pod lights yet.

    You may need some resistors added to the circuit to mimic the higher load of halogens vs. LEDs.

    not the easiest solution, but installing a relay triggered by the EOM fog circuit will fix it.

    Put a relay and a resistor on it and connected to battery and we got it to work off the factory for switch. Thanks everyone for your advice
