    Default is the dealer fobbing me off

    well i got my HID's from hidsdirect, fitted them in and they falsh when off, took of the capasitors they still flash when of (less bright) hidsdirect told me to have it tech 2 so as the car was in today having some faults fixed after the replacement cim i asked them to do it, my wife picked up the car and i asked he to make sure they had done it, they said no they couldnt do it because the lights wernt genuine vx lights,
    i was hoping they would do it because the work i was having done was free because they didnt reprogram the cim properly, and thought they could do it while the computer is plugged in

    so is that a they CANT do it or they WONT do it

    Won't is more likely, anything can be switched on or off - there or not.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    From what I've read the car sends pulses to the lights to check they're not blown and the HID's don't like this so it can be Tech2'd so it doesn't?

    Could be a problem with the HID's but not sure!

    True, but thats what the cancellers are for (or the ballasts with them built in).

    I think its HiDs direct fobbing you off, more so than VX.

    They are designed to work on a Vec C (canbus) and yours clearly do not, maybe they sent the wrong kit..?

    Enabling the ecu to accept its running xenons changes the way the lamp out system tests and stops them pulsing. Dan is right, thats also what the cancellers are for.
