Warning Code Eliminator/Anti-Flicker Module

Received and installed the warning code eliminator (from post #8) and now the HID fog kit from DDMTuning works perfectly.

- No flickering at startup (in cold weather too)
- No "check fog lamps" message on the dash

I'm very happy with them now that they work properly. I recommend this mod. Especially for post-face lift because there's no cutting required of the fog light assembly.

I ordered the apexcone 35W 3/4 ballast but surprised me by sending the DDM 35W slimline as an upgrade. Had to eventually get the additional module for them to work properly.

I just got a new set of HID Fogs. No flickering, no warning codes and no canceling cables needed. Cost was $115 too. They're 6000K. Xenons were upgraded to 6000K too. Paid $70 for the set. Angel Eyes were upgraded to GP Thunders 8500K for $15.
