My HID kit came with instructions to replace the Headlight fuse with a higher wattage (30).


I just installed my HID kits recently (yesterday)... that kit is made by Hella (at least the Ballast is by Hella, don't know about the light bulbs)... I just don't get the answer for the problem... here is the problem!!

If the car is not warmed up (just like earlier in the morning), when I turn the HID on, there is a great possibility of getting the "Low Head light failure" message on the OBC... and also my SMG digital display fades a bit or even doesn't display the proper gear number(my car is a euro smg version which has the shifting display ( 7 segments LED display) right under the Rev. meter). But if the car is going or totally warmed up, there will be no fault message from the OBC at all when I turn the lights on... but sometimes the LED display I mentioned before might get a bit screwed up... displaying only a few segments instead of the whole numbers...

Does anyone know what's wrong with it?? is that because of my battery??? dying soon???? I just changed my battery about half a year ago though... I know if the battery is dying, the SMG display will not be that clear... but don't know if that's the problem though?!

Really appreciate for any help!!!! thank you guys!!!
