Bulb Out after Halogen > Xenon conversion

I read this thread
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=367566

and created what it stated, however i still have the bulb out warning on dash, any help?

I had halogen lights, and bought an HID kit from visionbulbs. Anyone have any insight as to how to trick the car into thinking there is still halogen bulbs attached?


TIA

You can do one of 3 things: get the ecu flashed by the dealer, install a set of resistors or pull fuse 32 to disable the bulb out warning.

Either that, or pull fuse 32, or take it to the dealership for a reflash.
