lux angel eye install problem

I tried installing my angel eyes today but it was only a tease because a minute later I got the headlight error. Is anyone in the central jersey area that has done this error free and would be able to help me install these bad boys one day? I will pay in beer

Yeah this happened to me when I installed mine. I took it out and used 3m double sided tap to anchor the box to the housing cover. It's a pain in the ass GL OP

happened to me, dealer had to replace igniter, motor and headlight bulb. very expensive. it wasn't because the LED i put in. it stayed there even after putting the stock bulbs back in. the balast must have fell down and got stuck in there. i ended up getting velcro and velcroing it to the headlight backing. kinda like the other idea with tape. i hope everything works out with you. good luck.

I tried Velcro first and had no luck with it.
