Default My JDM lights are working crazy with after market HID kit. Help!

I just installed Mccullouch hid kit after I modified beam pattern to LHD. The light came out really good but they are on and off by themself , especially when I was going bumpy road. I was thinking about bad connection so I checked all the connections and found nothing. They are stay on when the head light switch is on. When the switch is off, they are on and off... I don't know what that is? Anyone? Hello Mulder or Hank3?
Thank you guys in advance.

You have apparently failed to disconnect your DRL module before installing the HIDs. When the lights are turned off, the HIDs are trying to operate through the DRL resistor but there isn't enough juice to fully turn them on. You need to address this immediately before the HID bulbs and/or ballasts are damaged or the DRL resistor burns up.
The DRL control module inside the car next to the glove box is what you have to unplug. There are many threads in this forum that tell you how, some with pictures.
Do it now.
