You have the stock halogen headlamps now? I saw your thread from 4 years ago:

The 2015 uses the BCM to drive the headlamps. It monitors for over-current (short) and under-current (open). It can store lighting fault codes. If the BCM thinks that the fault might damage the circuit, it shuts down power to that circuit for protection (much like a fuse would). It will restore power if the circuit is normal & after an ign off-on cycle.

The LED circuit current-draw must match the original lamps. Since LEDs draw less current, a parallel load (resistor) must be used to try to match the original lamp load. Typically 6Ω? The resistors will get hot & screwed onto sheetmetal to dissipate the heat. Keep plastic wires & components away. It will mimic the draw of the original lamps and hopefully keep the BCM happy.

You may have a different beam pattern & you may or may not like the results.

There are discussions here:

I got a set of Au-Kee LED 9012 headlights from Amazon, they are completely plug and play. No resistors needed, and they don't throw any fault codes. I've had them in since May 2021.
