HID still flashing after Xenon = Present
Hi all ever since I had undertaken this project it has been a nightmare. So I have taken the car to the dealership and had them set the Xenon=present on the StarDiag and they printed out the sheet with all of the setting to show that they did the change, but my HID are still flashing and showing a headlight malfunction. Did they not save the setting after they did the change? Im not sure but on the print out they gave it said it was changed.
I'm not sure if there is a difference between US programed cars vs. non US programed cars on the StarDiag sheet but did your dealer had to change anything else on the StarDiag to make ur headlights work cause on the sheet there was also a light malfunction indicator category that could be enabled or disabled.
My kit is a philips plug and play H7 kit from Xenon-Depot the dealer said that it could be the install thats causing the problem, which I am not sure of since I just followed the instructions from the sheet and the kit does come on when I turn the lights on but it just flashes (like many of the members who had done the install before turning xenon = present) a few times and then the light goes completey off. So its either that there something wrong with the install or something wrong with the kit, or lastly the dealer lied to me or either did not save the setting for xenon=present.
If there is any MB technichian that has done the setting before and dont mind talking to my local MB tech on how to do this please let me know.
