    I have 2019 T4R and ordered Led bulbs for low beam headlights from Xenon. According to the OM and Xenon website, I needed H11 for low beam. Once I received them and started changing out, the factory bulb in the low beam is 9005. So heck I got the OM out again to make sure I was In the right area for low beam. The area with the dust cover is for low beam. The plugs won’t fit because I am assuming because I have h11 and a 9005 bulb came out of it. So to test something out. I went to the high beam/drl factory bulb which is suppose to be 9005 according to the om and Sure enough the Xenon Led H11 fits there except I have annoying flicker and too bright on drl. So I am confused. Can someone help me out here.

    I guess I’m confused by your issue.

    H11 for low beam
    9005 for high beam

    The h11 that it calls for doesn’t actually fit the low beam. It fits the high beam. The actual factory bulb that is in the low beam from the factory is a 9005. So the h11 that I ordered for low beam will not work. The sizes that the om calls for seems reversed on my truck.

    Okay I have since figured out some of my problems. The company Xenon Pro sent me another set of bulbs which was same size but after reviewing both boxes and the plugs on each I have discovered their company put the first bulbs into the wrong box. So now I have 9005 and h11 led bulbs from the company. Although I do have a factory placed 9005 bulb in my dim lights when attempting to change over to aftermarket led. But now what do I do about the dtr lights being so bright and the flicker on them? I understand they are dual beams and Xenon Pro site says I wouldn’t need the anti flicker module. I have an order in for the flicker module to see if it helps. Has anyone had this issue and a fix.

    If you have auxbeam T1 H11's & T1-9005's, they come with an anti flicker module. In Japanese made vehicles, the anti flicker module is not necessary.
