      HID's wont turn off

      Hello, so I have a 16 dart. I put an aftermarket HID kit in it. The kit works great except when I stop the car and shut it off, and turn the lights off, the HID kit does not turn off. I know the normal lights did stay on for a minute or two after they were shut off, but the hid's do not turn off until I wait about 5 minutes and turn the switch back and forth a few times. I do not have auto lights.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you

      I have the ddm tuning canbus plus kit. The lights work great, no flickering or anything like that. It's a 35 watt kit . I do get a lowbeam out message but it just beeps once on startup and that is about it.

      Hope this helps

      You may have them plugged in the wrong way honestly! Simple mistake sometimes! Can you add a little more info about you car? What model, engine, transmission and then which headlights your car came with stock? Were they stock bulbs or stock HIDs?

      Sometimes it makes a difference.

      I feel like I have heard of this before, but I am not entirely sure on this. It sounds like it's based on the HIDs. DDM it is a terrible company. I have their kits, and use them only for spares lol

      I have a 2016 with the 2.0 and 6 speed manual. It came with halogen lights.

      By being plugged in wrong, do you mean the polarity? Right now I have them reversed because I read in a different post that mine has reverse polarity.

      Also can I just switch the plugs and try it? I don't want it to blow anything.

      I also have the relay harness installed, if that makes a difference

      Its probably the harness... I know when i got my HIDs and had the harness, it did weird things as well. If those HIDs are true Canbus compatible, then you should be able to run them without the harness...

      I don't want to run the risk of blowing the bcm. I have heard the borrow stories of people running HID kits and not using the harness.

      Ok, so I tried switching the wires. That did not help at all. The lights would not even turn on, so I'm thinking maybe of just wiring a switch in the harness so I can just turn them on and off.
