Hi iv just put 6000k HID bulbs in my fogs and when im driving with them on after about 2 mins the brake light warning symbol comes up on the dash, and if i turn the fogs off the symbol goes, why are they causing this to come on? help please
Depends what kit you buy. Some of them throw problems with the DIS.

Is it foggy tonight ???????
or is it FLW time
tbh the fogs offer jack all extra visability
red to red black to black blue to bits
are u sure its the brake light warning or just the light warning? probably thinks there's no bulbs in there as the LED lights are different to the normal ones
Are you one of those lovely folk that drives around the whole time with your fog lights on?
I wish we had the same laws as Germany.
no offence Dan but im thinking the same.....i always flash the idiots, and then theres the odd total cock who drives at night with sidelights and fogs!!!! the other day a corsa came up behind me at about 2am with just blue sidelights...... and no doubt he'd have been the first to complain if he'd been pulled over.

i use my fogs alot as i drive down country lanes regular on the night and need as much light as possible, the symbol that comes up is like this ( (!) ) in red and bleeps a few times, but iv noticed now it only comes on when im driving but if im going quite fast on the motorway it goes off but soon as i slow down to normal roads its back on again! any ideas?
the fault that came up on the diagnostics for this problem was that it has low valtage to rear lights when the fogs are switched on, how would i be able to get more voltage to the rear lights with the fogs on? i would recomend putting HID's in fogs as they improve the visability much more! i also put 6000k bulbs in my headlights, pic to so how they look in the day,
Dan it has been known that adding HIDs can cause a variety of problems and errors, so it looks like this maybe the case on your car, however i think there isnt really a fix for it apart from clearing the code, but as soon as you do it will come back, i think the only way round it is by living with it....
BTW, the pic looks really good with all the lights the same colour...good work
Dan, your front end looks mean!
