Yes, I have some knowledge about the relays and I have installed them in my other cars as well. You're right when you said "regulated current". That's the reason, I was getting a little flickering. When the ballasts are fired first, they draw too much current and the relay is definitely required then.The main benefit of installing a relay harness is that it can help to provide a regulated flow of energy to your HID headlights. By regulating current and drawing power from the battery, a relay harness can help prevent damage to your HID lighting system as well as the car itself. It can also fix many common problems, such as flickering lights, headlights that don't turn on, and lights that draw too much or too little power.
If you're only using an aftermarket HID, I dont think you would need anything than a relay to connect to pin 1. Rest of the pins would stay AS IS.So going from halogen to HID:
on the connector to the headlight (left side)
pin 2 - leave alone
pin 1 - insert relay. Relay wired to fuse F03 (20amp) and a ground
pin 3 - leave alone
pin 7 - leave alone
pin 10 - ground - not needed
pin 9 - wire up to Body Control Module connector 5 pin 40
pin 8 - goes to Body Control Module connector 4 pin 14 - remove
May want to double check what I have.
If you have the bi xenon HID without the signature LED, I think that it is plug and play.
I would put it like this based on the stock and HID connectors pin diagram. All I will do is tap into the existing 4 pins connector ( Halogen base connector) and Parking lamp connector.If you are going OEM, as I am under the impression that everyone here is, then, these are the changes you would make to get the signature light to work and keep the wiring as Jeep has it.
The 1st post explains that I am doing the aftermarket bi-xeon. So I need help with that 😑If you are going OEM, as I am under the impression that everyone here is, then, these are the changes you would make to get the signature light to work and keep the wiring as Jeep has it.
Those are very hard to find. The best reason to find that wired diagram is so that people can use Canadian and international tail lights for if they want a tail light yellow blinker indicator. Instead of just our brake lights blinking right and left.I'll see if I can also get the wiring diagrams to the rear LED tail lights, if anyone is considering doing that swap as well.

If you mess a lot with alfaobd this starts to happen. I noted this in the alfaobd thread, there is no real reason why this happens yet. I think it has something to do with software and how ours can't fully reset the system. If you get your system reset by the dealer it will help a ton. That is what happened to mine when I got my trailer hitch installed. It is proxying great now but before that I was scared cuz the last time it took over 20 times for my Jeep to proxy.Rear LED tail light.
I bought it sometimes ago but have a problem to pass proxy alignment on AlfaOBD. Still stopped on ABS module

Yes, I actually did see that Aliexpress had these when I was searching. Way cheaper than used ones off Ebay.
No luck on the programming, huh? That isn't good. It may be possible that the ABS is not programmable and it is necessary to buy a ABS module already programmed. I ran into this problem with my Mustang. Buying the proper module solved it. Who knows.
Jim your good your giving a lot of great info, I believe your info and work will help us with base harnesses be able to make adaptors for the aftermarket bi-xeons as well. Since we basically need the same pin connectors and power to those connectors but most likely not the module.2017 - 2018 Canadian Compasses do not have the rear LED option, nor do the inner lights on the tail gate work for those years.

I use the OBD link MX and Bluetooth with my Android phone as well. Have no problems now since the full reset on my system like I stated above.In used bluetooth OBDLink MX and android version of AlfaOBD but bluetooth interfaces are not recomended. Sometimes works sometimes not so I bought USB STARDIAG interface and PC version of AlfaOBD. I hope it will work.... didnt try yet.
