The flickering is caused by cold monitoring. Every time the car is started it cold monitors all lights to check if the bulbs are ok. This is standard, and usually is not noticed, but when LEDs are installed they flicker, where other bulbs are not noticeable. They do not tolerate this flickering for ever, and eventually weaken in brightness or die completely. Cold monitoring can be turned off by coding.
