I got some light wrap sitting in my house which I'm gonna throw on once it's warmer. Will post pictures when able. I did also reach out to the seller and there is currently no way to make only the DRLs yellow

So I recently installed these headlights and have been getting a battery fault code on start up that says ďbattery discharging while stoppedĒ may be some type of parasitic drain on the battery while the cars sleeping. Has anyone else encountered this?

Iíve reached out to my coder Marius and he informed me I am not the only person to reach out to him about this same fault code after installing these lights. My car is at the dealership right now getting the fault code checked out and they are helping me track down the source of drain, and so far they say it is pointing to the headlights but not conclusive yet. I just wanted to check in to see if anyone else has had this issue and if so if you were able to resolve it.

Iíve also reached out to the vendor I purchased these lights from to see about a replacement if my set may be defective.

Thanks

Depends if you have Adaptive Xenons or not.

I originally ordered 8pin from my seller but realized 9pin is required for my adaptive xenons. Alternatively, You could do 8pin and get a harness from Marius

Which seller did you go with? What was your previous OEM light version and what did you go with for Pin #',

It's possible you may have had this issue prior to installation too. Obviously, the draw test will tell for sure. I've been having that message pop up for a while since before I installed the lights. Takes me around 3 days of not driving to get it though. Comfort Access commonly causes this too.

I got them from Bayoptiks, I had the Adaptive xenons and they sent me the 9pin version

Same symptoms as me, if I drive the car daily it's fine, no error code. But if it sits more than 2 days, comfort access gets disabled and the message pops up on start up. And since this car is not my daily, it sits for 3-7 days regularly. Though I do make sure to drive it at least once a week so battery shouldn't be dying.

I do vaguely recall now that message popping up during install, but I didn't think anything of it as I figured it was because I had the hood open for a couple days since the installation spanned over an entire weekend. But now its been installed for a few weeks and it continues to come up I began to suspect its something with the headlights. Really hoping it's not but I'll keep everyone posted on what they find.

Tint still has to "cure" for clarity but just got it put on. The slight haze will be gone in a few days

Assuming you mean adaptive LEDís then yes, 9 pin will do it. I also had pre lci adaptive LED which is 10 pin and got the 9 pin and it worked.
