Need help finding an Electrical guru for LED headlights

This problem may or may not be a duplicate not to sure can not find what i am looking for on the internet my problem is that i do have LED low beam as of right now i am using the retorfit harness on my 08 dodge ram. the problem i am having according to my tuner its indicating the low beams left and right control circuit is high.! Can this be fixed with resistors? Also, right now i see my left low beam looks slightly brighter when turned on than the right low beam please help anyone thanks.

Ok first let's make sure the truck doesn't set codes with normal bulbs in there. Get a cheap set of lights or the factory set and just plug them into the sockets and make sure they both look to be the same brightness and both work and if you have a scanner make sure the codes go away. If all that works then measure the resistance across the pins for the factory light not plugged in and compare it to the LED complete setup all plugged together but not into the truck. This will let you know if you have enough resistance on the plug/harness end before the lights to keep the trick from shutting them down or acting up.

Most of the manufacturers list lights that supposedly are "CANBUS ready", but from what I read about LED's, our trucks present unique challenges for retrofits. Some ppl have to use capacitors and resistors to prevent error codes, while some HID systems I've looked at state right on the webpage that they haven't been able to figure out their own bi-Xenon Ram compatibility issues.
