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.

Where did you install the HID ballasts? They are interfering with the ESP and ABS controllers. Just move/mount the ballasts away from all electronic devices.
The problem is that you mounted the HID ballast on to the ABS controller/pump assembly. Move the ballast away from the ABS unit. The problem should go away.

To set the xenon=present, you would have to go to the dealer.
