Headlight Error Eliminator's not working?

Hi, I have a set of projector headlights on my E46 and have always had the "head light out" warning lights on. I decided to pick up a set finally of the error eliminator plugs from DDM. Once installing/plugging in I've noticed no change, still have the error. I figured maybe I need to give the computer time to reset but i'ts been a few weeks now and still the errors are on.

Here is a link to the product: http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Er...minator-3-PAIR

Does anyone have any experience with this or any ideas? Are my LED corner bulbs possibly setting it off? I cannot think of anything else. Thanks.

In-case anyone ever searches for this, here was the solution for me:
1) hold gas pedal down until you hear a "click" noise with key in off position
2) turn key forward/backward 11 times w/o starting the car to reset the computer.

did you try flipping the connector around? maybe the eliminators had that **** backwards. it has happened to me. though i just cut the customer's OEM connector and re-spliced it backwards so that it will snap on correctly on the eliminator.

as for your corners, if that is setting it off, most likely you have the fast blinking

it could be the highs being bad too if you have never checked on them lol other than that, just reflash the car or use the cap mod. those 2 things are confirmed to work. the eliminators are more like a 50-50 shot. works on some cars, not on others.
