Okay I recently put xenon lights in my non-xenon e46 323ci but now the burnt out headlight indicator on my dash is always on.

Can anyone tell my how I can get my burnt-out headlight indicator to stay off when my lights are not turned on (it turns off when i turn the lights on). I remember hearing about some resistor or something that I could install to trick the system into not turning the warning light on.... but then again I could be crazy... Am I stuck with the lindicator being on forever or is there a way to fix my problem????

Did you search on E46fanatics? The answer is on there.

You can pull out fuse #32 and it should go out...or have dealer flash ECM for xenon equipped..

Which Xenon upgrade kit did you use? I'm looking into it and it's so crazy the swinging of prices and "reliability" listed on them... I could use the opinion of a fellow E46'r...

Thanks,

I bought the 6000k kit from www.xenondepot.com they're best from my research.. I have 2 friends with them a no probs after 2 yrs.. You will have to get dealer to enable xenons to get rid of dash warning light..

I'm assuming you mean the Converstion Kit - right?

Also - the question I always had looking at these is how do you get the H7 bulb to stay in the headlight unit? Do you have to mod the headlight unit?

You have to mod or buy an extra set of lowbeam holders... use a dremel and it works fine...I'm EXTREMELY happy with the results and I get NO one flashing me as some saythey have encountered.. email me at surk@cogeco.ca and I can send you the PDF DIY on holder mod..
