    Wiring in HID fog lights

    I ordered an HID kit from DDM Tuning a while ago. Install went well and I used the stock fog light wiring harness. I had igniting issues and being familiar with HID installs I made my own relay harness.

    I'm thinking at this point I need a resistor on the kick on lead for the relay (I used the hot lead from the drivers side fog for that) to stop the constant relay tick. I believe it is also need because the relay constantly, and quickly pulsates when the fogs are on when the car is running. I just don't know what size resistor?

    I am ordering a set of HIDs for my dad soon and I might invest in a set of the error cancelers from DDM to see if that solves the issue when using the stock harness only.

    for fog lamps you must use H3 bulbs to avoid problems in the BCM as the power is monitoring by the computer system.
    - you cannot change the resistances values of the bulbs.

    No, I will be using the HID bulbs. A resistor needs to be put on the stock wiring to fool it into thinking there is a a bulb attached to it.

    I will be using error eliminators to see if they cure this issue.

    did you read the Notice in the above picture in post no. two?
    sorry I can't help you. may somebody else can give you a thought to solve you problem.
    my recommendation is going back to the genuine bulbs and wires diagram according the specifications of your car to avoid issues.
