Just bought me a set of the DNA Motoring Halogen aftermarket headlights to replace my HID Xenon/Adaptive Headlights because I refused to pay 1200 for a new set of xenon headlights.. anyways. I plugged it up, and everything works fine except for my high beams. I have no error codes, and when I hit the stalk the blue high beam light comes up on the dash as if they're on but they're not.
I've been searching everywhere for an answer to my problem, figured I'd finally make my first post here to see if anyone else has had this issue and could help me.

You update the VO to add halogens and remove Xenons?

No I haven't, I was assuming it was something I was gonna need to have coded. I'll have to take it to my shop and see what they can do.

You ever get this figured out? I'm in the same boat as you and I'm getting 2 different answers all across the board. It's either a coding issue (changing the VO, etc) or some how needing to rewire and repin the headlights.

Kind of the same boat. My son has a 2009 that came originally with adaptive headlights but the previous owner installed some eBay headlights and they look like crap. Don’t want to go the OEM route if we can get headlights like this to work. I’m pretty confident that it is a coding thing but would like to verify.

Yes, you have to code out the Xenons and change to halogens. Also, these are not bi-xenon so your inside "flash to pass" bulb becomes the high beam.
