Work fine in mine... Except i got the "Bulb Out" light on. However from what i heard this is only if the HID kit has a relay and connects straight to your battery as well as your factory harness.

got HIDs, no problem, not even bulb out warning.

noregret4life, the battery relays are optional on the kits, mine didnt come with it, i bought a relay and installed it, the bulb out light went on. my guess is its drawing more power from the battery triggering the bulb out sensor. try unplugging the relay, see if the bulb out goes off..

I've actually had the bulb out light covered since i put in the HIDs over a year ago. So i never see it anyway, but maybe i'll try it out this weekend. It's all been working fine, so i'm not sure i want to even mess with it...

If it aint broke, don't fix it [;)] right...

but thanks for the heads up, slkpwr

I dont like people who always tell others to search.
The reason being there are new ideas that come to light etc.
It would be more helpful if you at least posted a link you searched for.
Dont take this as a bad criticism. Its just that I am a few forums that some guys just wont ask questions anymore as people jump straight down their throat.

Since I don't know you, I guess I won't take it too personally that you don't like me [;)] [because I just did a few posts suggesting folks search]. When folks on this forum point out the search function it is really gentle instruction that you can go and do a little research before creating a new topic. I don't think anyone here flames someone because they didn't search. Sometimes search is broken. But say you do find something, when you ask your question, you'll be able to get to the real issue quicker which might bring something new to light. While some times we might give a link as an example, some times we don't have time. And it certainly doesn't take a lot of effort the the "asker" to type in a few search terms.

That would be pretty expensive especially if you want to install everything to get the levelers to work right.
