|Maybe an issue with the DRL module?|
The BCM is the body control module. It's a computer which controls all the body electronics. It's real common for people to start installing things like radios, or in your case HIDs, and forget to disconnect the power to the car whilst doing so. One little short is all it takes to fry the bcm and do weird things like that, you probably wouldn't even know it shorted.
Another possibility is the bcm doesn't know how to react to the increased power drain from the HIDs and is doing weird things. The bcm may simply need to be reset since you disconnected the HIDs already. You reset the bcm by removing the battery cable for a minute or two.
I refrain from all these kinds of mods in modern cars for these reasons. You have no idea the complexity of what you are doing (and neither do I).
My suggestion is for you to pull off the negative battery cable, disconnect your HID system, replace the bulbs with the original ones and see if that helps.
|Ok, I looked up the system on hmaservice.com. They show an automatic light control system. If memory serves me, someone else had this problem, and was able to control it better by switching from "auto" mode to manual (if that makes any sense). The consensus was there was a problem with the light sensor located on the dash.|
