Just wanted to give a positive review of diode dynamics. Have ordered a few items from them. Very good pricing (if you need 10% off let me know I have a coupon code)and quick delivery

+1 for Diode Dynamics as well. Bought LED's when I had a Camaro and just bought more for my Sierra. Excellent customer service!

Bought some HID lighting from Innovite on Amazon.  The HID ballasts have a CANBUS on board, but the Morimoto relay harness I used was buzzing due to the PWM for the DRLs that cannot be turned off (Canadian Origin truck). 

 

I sent Diode Dynamics an email asking for possible solutions and they instantly recommended a single $10 capacitor to be used between the OEM headlight socket and the relay harness.  I hadn't seen this setup before, so I ordered it and it was at my door in 2 days via USPS from Chicago.  I live near Seattle WA.   They told me that the "buzzing" I was getting on the relays could actually damage the HID ballasts.  I had already replaced two bulbs.  Guess what?  One of my HID ballasts was intermittent/dying and the two bulbs which I thought were bad are actually good.  I got another ballast from Innovite under warranty and all is good now.  The capacitor did what it is supposed to do and there is no more buzzing or flickering.   Diode Dynamics gave me all this advice and only sold me one $10 part which arrived much faster than anticipated.  I will be giving them another look next time I have lighting needs.
