Help!!! Headlights not working.

4023 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ALMOSTindy
Recently purchased a set of HID headlights to upgrade from my st2 stock lights and for the first 2 days they worked properly. Since then anytime i start the engine i received this

I thought my lights shipped with some cheap ballasts and plugs. So i bought a set of compatible morimotos thinking this would solve the problem, but it hasn't.

When the car is in accessory mode, the lights work fine.

As soon as you start the engine they shut off.

Sorry for the terrible quality pictures

Your hid pulls less watts than the factory bulbs so the ecu thinks you don't have headlights. You need the heady duty gold resistors.
There's a company that sells a plug and play resistor setup for our car.
