HELLO,

Has anyone here installed xenon fog kit and found a way to trick the check control into not displaying the chk fog light message in an E38. I will figure it out if not but just checking.

each car's check control system is different, some will throw a code while others wont, all thats needed for a cure is a ressistor pack i sell them for the 5er but it may work on the 7er, i would say do your hid conversion and then worry about the check control.

I did the hid conversion and I did get the check control error, what I did as a temp fix is wire in some side marker lights which fixed it. I tried to put in some .47 ohm resistors at first but that did not work, I thought it might because the stock fog bulb had a resistance of .40 ohms. Then I tried the side marker bulbs and that worked. But I would be intersted in you resistor packs please let me know whats up with them.
