    Default Hid coding

    Hi guys I've heard it's best to tell a certain control module that my car now has xenon lights fitted once I've fitted my hid kit latter today to my pre face. But what control module and option is it I code. Cheers guys

    Means you don't have to run Cancellers, and they wont strobe when you turn them on or off. Some hid kits work without cancellers, some dont, due the canbus system.

    When you unlock and lock you car do you not notice them flash from side to side about 6 times? This is the canbus bulb check system at work, most likely happens when your driving along the road too.
