HID installation on 2014 elantra sedan

I just installed low beam HID headlights on my elantra. They look great and everything is good. Except for one thing I noticed and its not a huge deal, I don't think, I was just wondering and making sure. When I turn my headlights on (I don't have auto), the dash lights (the ones that come on when you start the car) come on briefly and then go off. Is there a reason why this happens?

It's most likely the computer checking the lighting system and since it's not stock it throws a brief code. Mine do the same thing occasionally depending on when you turn the lights on with respect to when the car is started.

Hey what kind of HIDs did you buy? Brand and model? I’m a new Elantra owner. Thanks

I bought my HID systems through Xenonsupply.com. Solid products, excellent support. They have a sister company called PrecisionLED.com that offers ballasted LED headlight systems.
