did you turn it on the right way? you know, when you flip the switches, you did it in the proper order?
You should figure out what is in there before going any further. Blinking headlights to me means 1 of 2 things.The whole LED ,hid,halogen thing is confusing to me, I am not even sure what my car is using I am guessing that since it is an 06 Lexus is350 its probably Halogen, my low beam HEad lights are crap if ther is on coming traffic its like my headlights are not even one and most times its like I see maybe 2-3 car lengths ahead, I have been reading up on the different types and I have read stories of people ( and I have seen this also) replacing headlights for brighter ones but then while driving down the road the light is slowly flashing, again I have seen this allot, all I want is brighter low beam head light s that will last a little while and I really don't want to fork out a few hundred then go through the hassle of pulling apart my car to switch them and then find out they are not working correctly and are flashing. and what's with everyone buying blue lights, I do sort of understand that some light colours affect the brightness in some weather conditions this I have known since childhood when they used to use yellow lights in fog.
its all confusing to me if I switch lights then I might have to buy ballasts wth hehe .
We were getting ~10cm per hour and saw closer to 60cm in Toronto in the span of 8-10hr? The winds didn't help either resulting in big drifts. 35cm was the average and away from the lake. My understanding is that it was falling too rapidly to be cleared, resulting in cars/trucks/buses getting stuck and then not being able to plow at all. We also stuck around the -10C mark so nothing was melting, today we're hitting +3 briefly and back down to -10C tonight. I suspect a ton of ice tomorrow...I don't get it.... Does Toronto not have any snow clearing equipment, nor any winter overnight parking bans?
yes, that appears to be my headlight lens.You should figure out what is in there before going any further. Blinking headlights to me means 1 of 2 things.
1. If they are flashing with a very sharp on/off like flipping a light switch then that is often a sign of an issue with an HID ballast. Energize turn light on, de-energize turn light off. Bad circuitry in a ballast can cause that.
2. Bad alternator, neighbour down the street his van clearly has a bad alternator and almost a year later he hasn't done anything about it but when he starts his van the bulbs go bright dim bright dim but in pulses like someone playing with a dimmer instead of a standard on/off light switch.
LED bulbs are often not designed properly for halogen housing, the diodes themselves are often not placed quite right for a housing that was specifically designed around a halogen filament which after being standardized for decades is in a VERY specific spot and the reflectors positioned based on that spot. Often if you have halogen reflectors a better halogen bulb is your best choice.
Now if you have HID projectors people just like blue bulbs and the lack of quality in LEDs is more forgiving in a HID projector but your often better off just using whatever is supposed to be in there. They make halogen projectors as well but something like a lexus is more likely to have HIDs from the factory.
Googling your car + headlight... left is a halogen reflector which is likely your high beam. Something like a PIAA Extreme bulb instead of the cheapest option in Canadian tire would make a difference. The right is a projector and if there is a balast it is an HID bulb, if no balast then likly a halogen projector. These dual bulb setups usually the projector is usually the low beam.

I might have pulled up the wrong image for your specific model but i hope that helps even a little bit.
