    Default xenon problem

    I got a vectra with standard headlights, my cousin fitted xenon headlights off a vxr with the wiring looms, he wired them up and they were fine when the ignition was on however a couple of seconds after the car started the lights started flashing like a police car lol.

    Any ideas???

    Cheers
    Dean
