    Warning lights are common when fitting HID's, the easiest way to resolve is to relocate the ballasts as near to the bulkheads as possible.

    I'm sure there's a guide for swapping the Coolant Temp sensor (G62) on the 3.0 on Google somewhere?

    As James said, move the ballasts as far back as possible. I had errors when I first fitted kine (not ones from trupps) but I moved them back. Drivers side is up near air con pipes, passenger side is near abs module (think that's what it is) and I haven't had a problem on 18 months now.

    You only have to play about with the near side ballast as that's where the abs/speed sensor are.
    The near side headlight shares the same ground as these.
    Either move ballast away from these or re wire the headlight earth somewhere else for a permanent solution.
