xenon and angle eyes problem

while switching on,off my lights some times it gives me error on dash board , i just switch the car off , and switch it on again turn the lights and the error is gone , sometimes there is no error at all even after several on/off switching, and today i noticed an error on the driver side , checked the driver side light and it was off , switched the lights off then on again and there is no error and the light was ok ??? soooo weird ???

and about the angle eyes i have several questions :

1 - if i triggered the angle eyes the 4 rings light , is there a way that i can only trigger one side ( left or right )

2 - i connect the triggering wire to the parking lights ( they are the same lights at first position) , but i have a problem the angle eyes works ok but it gives me a dash board error for the second light , if i connect a bulb to the second light the error goes


any help ??

that shouldn't happen at all. the angels don't have anything to do with your headlights. unless you're not using the wiring harness supplied.

is the xenon problem happening because you put on the angels? if so, take out the angels to make sure the problem is bad installation. if it goes away, start the angel eyes installation again. it could be a bad ground.

about the xenons . no everything is working fine i just need to reflash at the dealership, and i connect the angle eyes through the battery but i trigger them using the parking light harness , there is two red wires with white stripes one for triggering the 4 rings , what is the other 1 for ??

i need to trigger every two rings (one side) independetly from the others is that possible ??

what angels did you buy? 1 trigger is for the ecu, the other is usually for the footwell (remote function). why do you need to trigger them independently of each other? they should all come on at the same time.

so you only want half of them on at any time? kind of weird but ok. you can just tap the ballast wires to the parking lights. no need for a wiring harness, and you can trigger them independently that way.
