I installed a 55w 6000k HID system 2 days ago and worked fine the first day. Afterwards I was geting ESP and ABS errors and rear pad wear errors. I also couldn't pull the gear out of park. I was late for work this morning because I had to rip out the system and put the stock bulbs back in.

I did order the error code eliminators but didn't put them in till last night, whereas the above explains that didn't work out for me this morning.

One of the stock bulbs fell apart inside so I have to either get new regular bulbs temporarily or silverstars (more money I don't want to spend as the HIDs are already new)

Any advice? Once you go HID, you don't go back.

You may be able to get away without the Xenon setting if (1) your kit includes the proper electronics to fool the car into seeing the proper voltage load on the lighting circuit and (2) you disable the "constant" lighting setting in the instrument cluster options.
