HID HALO SEVERE MALFUNCTION!!!!!! Guru's chime in please

After 8 months of having HID halos, I have concluded they are the worst investment you can ever make! Last night about to head out the car wanted to blow up. All of sudden front passenger turn signal flickered and stayed on along with driver fender turn signal and the rear turn signal.....Yes the opposite sides of the car have something wrong with the turn signal staying on. The best part is the halo driver side stays on no matter what!!!!

You like my messages?



I pulled out fuse 86 which turned off all the turn signals but now my passenger side headlight dosent turn on. (I pulled this fuse for trial and error)

I disconnected battery and checked every fuse in the glove box. Is there another place with hidden fuses??


For those of you wondering: MY CAR

Oh man.
I doubt that it is the worst investment.
I've had electrical issues-when I installed my Performance wheel with the whole steering/EDC/ABS/wipers going haywire.
Check your wiring as a loose connector can cause failure of the whole lighting system.

Yea i know but im saying you need my circuit and harness! Its still hooked up from when that guy did it. He taps into the ECU box and didnt use the circuit. That tap into your ECU is causing the errors i promise you. JEMarsal was hooked up the same way and kept going into limp mode. After I installed my kit it worked flawless. You never installed my circuit and harness! Pm me

Chris please read thread.... The lights stay on after the fact the car is off and closed. The lights DO NOT SHUT OFF!! I needed to remove a BMW fuse just for them to turn off. I have to put the fuse back in just to be able to drive around

Maybe you should let Chris give it a try and see if he can fix it! He seems like he genuinely wants to help you
