    Default Flickering HIDS on canbus safe kit

    Iv fitted my hids today and they said they were candus safe lights, there is no error messages up on the screen or anything but the drivers side light is flickering but only when the engines running? When the engines off its just a solid light which tells me the kit itself is fine,
    the ballasts have the resistors inside them etc so i cant remove them, any suggestions, is there a fuse i can remove to stop the car checking the bulbs or anything??

    I activated xenon before I installed mine on Thursday, all good, tech 2 will costa about 60-70 quid there are other ways, but were not allowed to talk about it. How much did you pay for the kit bet there was a premium for the canbus kit

    Should stop it, assuming that is the cause of the problem.

    Essentially, changing the Xenon Lighting setting in UEC to 'present' switches off the lamp check to the headlamps, which is about the most common reason for the flickering you reported.
