KC Slimlite electrical problem...help!

Hey im new here, i tried asking some electrical savvy friends but they didn't really know what was causing my problem so i figured id join the forum. anyways, onto my problem...this past weekend i bought and installed the KC slimlite 130w long range lights and mounted them to my windshield. Everything worked fine and went smoothly the first day i did it but now for some reason my "ABS" light has come on on the dashboard and i hear occasional clicking noises similar to the ones you hear when youre using a turn signal, only at random speeds and at random times. Ive tried to duplicate the problem to figure out what causes it but so far ive got nothing. my friends think it may have something to do with the way i grounded the wire; i grounded the on/off switch near my gas pedal and grounded the relay near the battery. someone help me!

May not be much help-I also installed the same kit my TJ. I grounded switch to the bottom dash panel by courtesy light.

I need to look to be absolutely sure but don't think I grounded the relay under the hood-except to ground on battery

alright and you have no problems with it? i think this weekend ill try leaving it hooked up to the battery but driving around with it ungrounded at the switch to see if anything helps. not that it may be of help but just driving home a second ago, i noticed that the electrical clicking noise stops when you have your foot on the break if thats any help

I installed mine in the spring almost 4 years ago-no problems-did hard wire at the lights-took out little plug and soldered the wire and used heat shrink.
