You're using aftermarket HID's and a resistor pack. Your resistor pack is plugged in so the computer isn't reading a dead bulb but your HID is likely unplugged or not grounded.

Are you using a harness from the battery to power the HID Or are you piggybacking the factory wiring with a Y for the resistor pack?

So you are using an aftermarket hid? And your factory wiring harness is plugged into the ballast. (Which is taking the power and telling the computer it's fine) but the bulb is not actually igniting? Cross reference your bulbs and ballasts. See if the other side will power the bulb. Or if that ballast will power the bulb from the other side. You'll find the weak point. Either bad bulb or bad ballast. Factory wiring does not get along with HID so a harness powered unit is preferred. There's a thread for ENLIGHT HID you should maybe check out
