    HID's off my 9thgen due to unusual dash lights

    Hey guys, I took my HIDs off my car for a while due to unusual dash lights on i.e. power steering, VSA, brake, TPMS even when everything were normal... this happened twice and stopped the occurence when i pulled HIDs off my car. look at the pics when dash lights were on while i was driving on the freeway.

    look pics below

    hmm, thats interesting.. i had all my dash lights go off too but i didnt have any HID's on..I brought it to back to the dealership and apparently something had to be updated. Maybe your situation is the same?
