You need to fit a relay:

Your new headlight is pulling more power (5 amps) out of your electrical system than the wiring (and possibly even the generator) was designed to cope with (around 3 amps) - fit thicker wire from battery to headlight to offset the voltage drop.

Is your battery fully charged and in good condition?

Quick search found this.. (I have no experience with LED headlights... so can't recommend)

If your headlight flickers you will need to install a load resistor. You can find this at any electronics store. The value of the resistor which I found to work best for me is 500 ohms, you can try other values to see which work best for you. Good luck,
PS. Install the resistor between the two lines going to your headlight, on the car harness.






Or simply fit an bulb as I've done.
