    I am getting "Check stop light" warning on MID. Any idea?
    This suddenly came, and I guess after hitting brake. Could this be related to brake?

    Maybe the brake lamp must have got fused. Do you get this continuously on the MID or intermittently?

    This is what I saw in the manual,

    The warning light will come on
    (some versions only) when a fault
    to one of the following lights is detected:
    – side/taillights
    – brake lights
    – rear fog lights
    – direction indicators
    – number plate lights.
    The fault may be caused by:eek:ne or more
    burnt lamps, a blow protection fuse or interruption
    of the electrical connection.

    I believe the error could be due to brake light/fuse or loose wiring.

    Hi All,

    Talking about HID and Projectors- I had been using Morimoto Bi-Xenon Projectors with 4300K 35W Bulbs in my Fiesta. I used that for 2 years and it was simply amazing.

    After I bought Linea MJD in 2012, I was a little skeptical opening a brand new Linea Headlamp assembly because of warranty and hard glue used in it's seal :banghead:

    After 3 years of research and patience, finally I could get a broken headlight assembly and tried to open it on my Gas stove; I was surprised I could open 25% of the glass (of headlamp) as part of testing. This increased my curiosity and finally I am planing to upgrade my MJD's headlight to below:

    1. In Low Beam reflector- Bi-Xenon Projectors with 55W 4500K HID Bulbs and 55W electronic Ballast. All Morimoto (H1: Morimoto Elite HID System).
    2. In High Beam reflector- 35W 4300K HID bulb (yes, without projectors), with separate switch to used on extreme conditions on highways only.
    3. In Fog 4300K 35W HID Bulbs.
    4. Morimoto XSB LED Halos as Angle Eyes.

    All cost around 550 USD including shipping.

    It's planned for next Weekend. Will keep you posted on the progress :happy:

    I am planning to upgrade my Linea's stock bulps with Philips Xtreme Vision (H7 for High Beam & H1 for Low Beam).
    The expectation is for an improved lighting during rainy nights as I do lot of night driving on highways and country roads, can you help me with your feedback on how it would improve?

    Thanks
    Raj
