Default Wierd Bugeye Retro Fit Problem

So I installed my retrofit yesterday and I noticed that even with my switch for the headlights fully off while the car is running the headlights stay on. I even went behind my glovebox and disconnected the DRL harness and I still have the same problem but if the car isn't running then they'll turn off with the headlight knob fully off. Please help!!

Thanks in advance,
Mark

It's wired up perfectly.

Update: I unplugged the wrong harness because I looked at an old "How To" thread that gave a crappy picture description. I went to another thread that just gave a description and fixed the problem. Probably should've looked into it more before I posted this thread.

Anyways Hid's are working perfectly now and they're super bright with 55w ballast and 5000k bulbs! I'm lovin it!

It's crazy how nice it is, I was thinkin' I was crazy for forking over so much money for head lights but when I got them on, I realized how worth it, it is!
