Default High beam trigger led bulbs

Hi. I have led bulbs with h13 decoders. Trying to find a trigger for aux lights. If i take it from the headlights (before or after the decoder) i get relay chatter (not good). Any ideas?

Iím not 100% certain but maybe an anti flicker harness before your relay coil would smooth out the pulsed signal from the headlights and eliminate the chatter.

There's a fix for this. I've been working on HID headlights and people use a capacitor/diode solution to "smooth out" the headlight signal. There's a good thread on another forum about it though I don't know the rules about linking it here. I'd say if you search for JK headlight harness how-to, you'll probably find some good advice. Funny thing, I rigged a relay up for the HIDs using the stock headlight circuit as a trigger and had no chatter. I wonder why some have it and some don't..
