Can you provide more information? What "issues" are you having? And what is a TIPMCGW system?

The only problem I ever had with HID's in my truck was the location of the ballasts for the fog lights... they would cause interference with the pressure sensors in the tires. After some experimentation (moving the ballasts around) I found a spot that worked.

No problems at all with the headlight ballasts.

Flickering problems, tpms problems. Worried the ECM is resetting the circuit causing the problem

The flickering is easily resolved by using in-line capacitors; from what I understand they are almost a necessity. Like I said, the only time I had TPMS problems was with the ballast locations for the fogs - try moving them around. When my HID's kick on I still get the TPMS light on the dashboard for a brief instant but it goes out, and I checked the PCM with my programmer and it's not throwing codes...

Common problems with HID's but easily solveable! Good luck!

Upstarter, where did you end up mounting your fog light ballast because im having the problem of the TPMS staying on. Im also having the flickering and one headlight staying on problem i will try an inline capacitor for that. but another problem is after about 5 minutes of having my fog lights on the left one will turn off and the right one stays on. any ideas on that?

I ended up removing my fogs because I couldn't find a location for the ballasts where they didn't mess with the TPMS. If you want to keep them, you just need to experiment with locations, or someone else suggested wrapping them in aluminum foil to try to cut down on the interference.

I really think all your other problems can be traced back to not having flicker cancelers. Install the capacitors and if you haven't damaged a ballast with all the flickering you should be all set.
