I had them in my car but removed them because I had pdc problems and they would stay on or wouldn't cut off.

I wonder what effect the HID ballasts would have on the PDC sensors.

sometimes the ballasts have "digital noise" or magnetic fields, etc that interfere with the other electronics in the car like the PDC sensors.

Is there way to "cloak" the interference?

I confirmed the HID converted fogs are causing the front PDC sensors to go off even tho there are no obstacles in the front of the vehicle. Mounting the ballasts to close to the sensors, will cause this.

Installing an RF shield of some sort will block a bit of the interference. I suggest a chunk of lead...
