You need resistors/diodes/relay to cancel the DIS error out

you will probably also need to code the car to tell the central electronics module that xenons are fitted or it will see a fault & turn the power off to the lights.

Using that set up above with the relay the best thing would be to leave the headlight coding as it is as you don't have OEM Xenons.

You then may need to fool the bulb check using resistors, however the resistance in the relay may be sufficient to fool the Central Electrics module into seeing a working bulb.

That module posted above should be enough to fool the bulb test.

Don't forget though that you run the risk of blowing the wiper motor with aftermarket HID conversions. I would recommend that you do a search on the forum on the subject
