Bmw 750 fog light hid?

Whats up new to the forums anyways just installed my hid kit on my 07 750 for my fog lights. Here the problem when the car is in accessories mode the lights work fine, but when the car is started after 10 secs one light goes off then the other will one will go off. After all that the idrive message shows with light malfunction. Also when fog light button is pressed the idrive gets static. Please quick help is needed.

Two ways to do this,

1. (preferred method) Get the resistor packs similar to these
http://www.ledssuperbright.com/2-pcs...FQTqnAodVVcAvw

2. Go to Radio Shack, buy the capacitor 4700 uF/35V or 2200 uF will work.
When installing, notice the ARROW on the capacitor. Arrow should be connected to the "negative' black wire and the other end to the RED wire. This connection is between the power source and ballast.
