It's for LCM(light control module that report to car computer) to see if any the OEM (incandescent) bulb is blown or good, since OEM bulb is not LED (less efficient) it won;t flicker when this small test voltage goes through it but LED is way more efficient even small test pulse will turn it on momentarily hence the flicker people notice when putting LED bulbs for angel-eye,

Again the test pulse that produce the flicker is always there you just can't see the effect with OEM incandescent bulbs.

Don't mean to scare people away from LED bulbs.
