AAC LED Side Markers

Not to long ago I purchased a set of the LED sidemarkers from AAC. And may I say, they look great!!! But, I'm having a problem with my cars lighting. This is what's going on... This is at night by the way, when the lights are on... I turn the car on, and everything works normally like it should. But after 20 or 30 seconds my left side marker turns off and so does my left halo. My fog/drls also turn off as well. I have the Fieldgoal DRL harness, if anybody is familiar with it. I think I know what the problem is, but wanted to know what you guys thought. I think the LED sidemarkers aren't drawing enough current like the regular light bulb style sidemarkes do. Maybe that is causing this? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, you should contact Jeff (Fieldgoal) and let him know the situation. From your description it is very apparent that the controller causing the issue. The current of the sidemakers is not monitored by the BMC and would not cause this.

I had the same issue with mine not too long ago. I think the dealer reflashed my BCM because after that I had the same issue as the OP and I also had FieldGoal's DRL harness. After much trying on FieldGoal's part and mine I just added two diodes to my DRL harness and took off the relays and such. It has been like that for about 8 months now and I have not had an issue with it again.

So what you're saying, You completely removed the Fieldgoal harness and modified the car's harness with diodes?
