I’ve got a 2010 jk that came from Canada. I put led headlights in and now when my drl’s turn on, my radio gets full of static. I’ve been told that I need to find a “hacker” because there’s no switch, fuse or relay to turn them off they’re turned on by the computer... HELP!!!

is it just the DRLs or when the headlights are on as well?

Can you link the lights for us?

You have to change the settings in the computer to affect DRLs, there are a number of code readers/ like THIS ONE I bought a few years ago that use your cell phone and blue tooth. There are probably better ones.

Here is an DIY for anti flicker devices

I don't think anti flicker are the same as a can bus, though I could be wrong. The ones I put on my vehicle specifically said that the canbus was built in, and they are some no name cheap ones. And while the headlights and their halos work just fine, they came with fog lights that have a halo that mess with my radio, so I unplugged that part.
