Default need some wiring help please!!

Ok so I just built myself a heavy duty wiring harness out of 12Ga wire, Hella 40-amp dual-87 relays, and 9005 connectors.

The way I have it set up is there is a 9004/9007 connector that plugs into the passenger side factory harness, then feeds over to the 3 relays near the battery.... two of the relays switch on the grounds for hi and low beam, and the third relay switches on the +12V for both lights. The hi's are 9005 bulbs in EDM housings and the lo's are 9005-connectors feeding HIDs in the lowbeam projector housings... so the only difference from my wiring diagram i worked from and my product is that instead of a single 9004/9007 connector at the bulbs, i have a pair of 9005 connectors, one each for the hi and low.

Now, the problem I'm having is that when I turn off the car, the lo-s turn off normally, but the HIbeams stay on and no matter what I do with the switch, I can't get the hibeams to turn off when I turn off the car. Any hints on what to look for or what to fix?

I used this wiring diagram from scoobymods.com regarding building a hi-current harness for the UK300 lamps:

B+ relay doesn't look right, when power is off the relay is supplying power th the hi beams in reverse.

Show me the circuit diagram of your relays for more help

Okay - 86 & 30 complete the ground that connects 85 to 87, correct?

Looks like you're switching the ground through the other 2 relays.

What is on the B+ line with power on and off?

Trying to understand why pin 87 of the Hi relay gets power when the key is off

Eliminate the power relay and run the + to pin 85 of both relays. Connect the B+ line to the B+ of both sockets.

All you'll control is battery voltage to the socket when each relay is triggered bu the main harness.

I'd prefer not to have constantly hot +12V running to each circuit...

how about if I just run the +12bat to the 85 terminals of each relay. . .

Yep 12 volts to 85, when the relay switches, the power will go through to the lights.

With the circuit off, the 12 will just be on the pin
