On my 2012 200, I had purchased and installed Led Headlight Bulbs ,and they shut off and then started to flicker, does anyone know why this would happen.

I'm not sure if it's the same on headlights, but that is what always happens to my household LED's when the drivers start to burn out.

If the LEDs were just installed, you may need to also install loading resistors. The TIPM needs to see a certain amount of lamp current or it will set open or shorted lamp codes and shutdown the circuit for protection.
LEDs draw a fraction of the current used by incandescents and may not play nice:
If the sales code for LED or HID headlamps can be downloaded into the TIPM, it may accept the lower current load without having to add resistors?
