For the past 2 nights now ive gotten a phone cal at 1130ish saying my headlights were on in my truck. Last night we had some bad thunderstorms so i thought maybe that did something with the alarm. Went out to truck locked and unlocked it they went out. Well tonight i get the same call, it is raining again but not thunderstorms. This time no luck with lock and unlock, even starting the truck up and turning them to off wont kill the headlights. I do have morimoto hids, i'll have to mess with them more at work tomorrow but anyone else had this problem before?

I may try and find fuses to replace the ones in the kit with and see what happens after that. I dont understand where its getting the power from since the trucks have automatic killswitch after 15 mins or so. Plus even with the truck running i cant get the lights to go out

Well with the relay kit it has a constant going through the relay. if you got water in there it may be allowing it to complete the circut

I had the same issue with an old ford I have. Water got in there and shorted them out.

They make water-resistant relays, I use them all the time on our industrial equipment. Either that, or maybe try a balloon to seal them up?
