Post Head Lights

Hello, its been awhile since I've posted anything but I have run into a large problem. 2 months ago I put a full set of HID's in the truck and everything was working fine then 2 Saturday's ago my land lord calls and says my head lights are on. The truck was off and parked and I hadn't even opened the door in over 24 hours. On inspection there was no way to shut them off without disconnecting the battery. So I left it for 3 days and then went to use it and everything seemed to be fine so I thought nothing of it and drove it as normal. Friday night I was at work and had the truck there sometime in the middle of the night one of the guys at work noted there was a truck with its lights on in the parking lot but didn't know it was mine so left it. Then when I went to start it Saturday morning it would not start and I figured I was screwed and had to call road side after I couldn't boost it from one of the work trucks. The tow company came and get it going but now every time I shut it off I have to pull the negative to kill the battery.

Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this or has any advice. The HID's came with full relays and fuzed links to their secondary power connections. I didn't have to cut any factory wires and the entire system could be removed with little work.

My dealer is really good and should I take it there, do you guys think its my HID's or something to do with the switch or sensors?

Thanks
Erik

My only guess is maybe there is moisture/corrosion in the relay causing it to stick on? I guess an easier way to test is to hook up the stock halogens for a couple of weeks and see if it happens again. good luck, and let us know
