|TheHumbleGeek||Uh.... Maybe thats because the lights are pointed too high? Try doing a quick googly for headlight aiming... If one side is still too low, you might be out of luck, unfortunately...|

1 thing I missed was when you get into FoCCus.exe and your read. You didn't post "Load from file". Took me a minute to figure out to load it and then Write to BCM
I had a lot of Errors or triangles with exclamation points in my Foscan. How do I fix these?
these lights ROCK. Only bad thing Is I can't adjust one of them high enough for the cut off to match the other :(
Thanks guys! Please let me know about the Forscan thing to fix any codes or modules that are getting errors.

Fraychild did the write up already how to avoid getting error messages after HID install, but it seems to me there are some unnecessary steps in there.
So more simplest way:
1. Get Focccus software
2. get ELM27 reader off eBay, costs about $10
3. get ForScan software (needed to clear off error codes after)
4. connect ELM27 to laptop, let windows to install drivers.
5. Turn car on to ACC, switch off everything including climate, radio, auto light and so on
6. Connect ELM to car's OBD2, run Focccus, click open, it should connect
7. Once you get to the main Focccus window click "Read from BCM" in the left lower corner. Sometimes it takes several times to read all the settings from BCM, so be patient.
8. Once Focccus read all the settings from BCM click "Save to file", name it something like initial or stock (you may need it if something goes wrong, so you can flash stock settings back)
9. When you saved config settings to file you can change #14 to "Alternative HID" and #17 to "without dimmed dipped headlights"
10. Click "Write to BCM"
11. Wait, your car is going to act weird, lights, chimes, climate and so on will go on.
12. Now you can save new config file and close Focccus
13. Run ForScan, check error codes (I bet there will be many) and clear them.
After that you can proceed to installing your HID and check how it works.

Ok read about a billion threads but I have a question
I'm getting stock retro fits with morimoto projectors and ballasts from the www.lightingfirm.net. For $370 it's not worth it for me to mess with it.
They send out canbus harness as it works for many cars. If it doesn't they will ship the harness with resistors.
Canbus looks slick. Pretty much plug and play. But if they don't work here is my question. Can I use the canbus harness since its plug and play but then modify the car with FoCCCus so it sees I have alternate hid lights? Or does it have to have a harness and use the FoCCCus? Basically anytning in the canbus harness that will mess with the system that I can't use them both together?
Also, if I do the foccus app thing Id follow this post as it seems to be great
But I don't understand the who entering the strategy codes. Why do we have to do that and why do some get errors?

I'm retroing bi-xenon projectors into my car, and will be using the projectors as well as the stock halogen highs. Quad highbeams of death!

I've done my research. They aren't for HID's, but since I already have all the wiring I'll add HID's to see how they look and the beam pattern. I'll post pictures. I might run them for a little while and see if I have any issues.
I just didn't like the HID bulbs in the stock housing because they didn't look like they belong there. We'll see what they look like in the projectors. The high beam is an H1 which is hard to retro with an HId bulb so I'll probably keep them halogen as I don't like have an HID low beam with a halogen high beam.
