Default Clearview Bi-Xenon Kit Help

So I've been reading a lot of different posts on the internet and on this site about possible solutions but wanted to put some feelers out there. I installed this HID kit a day after Christmas and have been noticing more often a flicker in the driver side headlight. I don't know if it's become worse or if I've just become more aware of it. I do have the code cancellers installed as well. It only does it if the engine is running.

One of the (easier) solutions I've read about is upgrading the size of the headlight fuse. Problem is, I can't find which one it is for the headlights... they must call them something different on the fuse box so I have no idea what size fuse it is anyways unless someone would be kind enough to help or give feedback on this??

The flickering isn't terrible it's just annoying but, if anyone could help or would like to add their two cents I'm all ears!! Thanks in advance!

There is no fuse for the fog lights, or head lights. It is the TIPM Module that controls the lighting.

When you install CanBus ballasts or Error cancellers into your Ram truck and have one of these things fail (short out) or your wiring melts, your TIPM Module can blow out. No fail safe fuses to blow out.

HID lights with wiring harnesses have a fuse that will help protect the TIPM Module. Power comes directly from the battery through a fused wiring harness, not your trucks wiring to the HID ballasts. A wiring harness will cost you less than $30, but could save you $800+ to replace the TIPM Module.

So where should I start looking first to eliminate this then? Bulb? Ballast?
