    first off i would contact trupps as he sold you the lights
    i think the CTS is at the rear of the engine.

    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.
