Just installed 35watt hid kit. The lighting system is working fine but causing electrical interference with dash lights and VSA control. It also makes my radio have static. The funny thing is I can turn the car off and restart it and everything is back to normal. Has anyone had this problem before?

It can't mess with the car's computer regarding VSA.
Either something is defective with your VSA, or some other stuff is going on down there.
It's like saying your brand new suspension is causing the paint to peel.
It could possibly be many of your electrical components are sharing the same ground.

It only affects it when I turn the HIDS on, and it doesn't do it all the time. It never does it when the HIDS are off. It's like it locks up. I can turn the car off and back on again and things go back to normal. Different frequencies can cause interference with computer communication. I take it I am the only that this has happen too. I do have one of the ballasts mounted in the back corner of the passenger side. I also was wondering if it could be a ground issue.
