    Meh problems

    Right then this weekend I fitted my new control arms and hid's in the process I found my plenum had some water in but not alot so I took out the grommets. Now when I turn my headlights on I get my dash looking like a Christmas tree. The abs light comes on flashing brake on the dis traction control light on. But all ok until I turn the lights on. It still drives fine. Any ideas or do I need to get it on vag com to have a look at it

    The warning lights are a well documented issue. It's the ballasts on you your HIDs. I can't rememember the reason they cause it, but do a search on google or this forum for it and you'll find loads of threads.

    That sounds more like because if I turn the lights on then start the engine I get no lights at all

    Probably cheap, I've got them mounted under the headlight.

    Move them back up near the bulkhead, that often helps.
