Hi, I am after some info / help,
I have a 2016 focus 1.0 eco boost which was damaged, It had the standard Halogen headlights fitted with the DRL light.
I have purchased a set of Genuine Xenon headlights from a 2016 ST.
When I switch the headlights on they will turn off within a few seconds and then will not work again until I switch off the lights and the car.
Can anyone help with this?
Do I have to change any wires or do I need to get them programmed .
Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure about wiring but for sure you'll need to get the car computer updated for those lights. The voltage draw is different so the car is shutting them off because it's not what it expected. The same thing happens with LED bulbs, but that can be cured with adapters or programming. I'm not sure if an adapter works with the xenon housings or if programming is required.
