US xenon to Euro xenon Error! help?

Well my Euro's from Germany finally came in. I did the install and everything was plug and play. The only hard part was redoing the Lux 5.0. Anyways the headlights work fine but the headlight error warning comes on then goes away but the little orange triangle exclamation stays. I noticed my turn signal blinks faster. I actually like it but not the error code. Anyone know why this is happening? Thanks

By the way my US Xenon units are in good condition. A few pit marks but still look awesome. Anyone make me an offer, thanks.

You shouldn't be getting an error since you already had Xenon.

The faster turn signal might be due to a loose or out turn signal bulb. I just had the same issue and all I did was remove the turn signal bulb(s) and make sure it was replaced properly. Your error might be related to this.

+1 fast blink usually means a turn signal is out, check the turn signal bulb to make sure its not loose and is the right kind of bulb

Fast blinker usually means you're a ricer or a bulb is out

Damn, you guys are good. That is exactly what it was. Loose turn bulb.
Question: How much would you say my 2008 US Xenons are worth? Thanks for the help guys.
