If removing the fuse kills these other warning lights, why are so many members doing it then?

they don't, back in the days few people did but then the flickering issues came back and caused them to go do the reflash anyways.

I see. Well when I do get them I'll have my tech buddy hook em up, and get the reflash done, even tho he says he doesn't think its possible.
Then again, that's prolly because in this area, I doubt anyone has even gone from halogen to xenon thru the dealership.

The alternative is you can just get the error canceling ballasts with the P46 with Orion V2 kit

why don't you just make some caps? it's like what? 30 bucks or less depending on where you get them and if you want the project box or not.

Me, I'm an electronic clutz, that's how I blew my JL 300/4 amp and Alpine sound processor.
Alpine fixed the processor for me for a small fee. I'm trying to scrape the funds together for the amp now.
So since my buddy is a bmw tech, I'll just have him reflash it.
Easier for me.

Why pay and wait for someone to make it when I can have it reflashed at the dealership?
