What is the tap connector for? Does it eliminate cutting and splicing the existing ground wire?

So you still get an error on start up. What kind of error? Is it the exclamation symbol or the headlight warning?

Thought you are now completely errorless, as in no errors whatsover.
The tap connector is to eliminate cutting and splicing of the existing ground and new ground.

The only reason why when you start the car it errors with the ! mark is because the Xenon ballast uses 35W, where as the halogen bulb uses 55W. No red warnings, the ! is only at the bottom of the screen. After you drive the car for less than 1 minute, the ! disappears completely and your car is CHECK OK.

PHASE 2 WILL BE 100% ERRORLESS, no error prompting on start-up.
Should be finished within this week or next.
