switches are always on?

Guys,

I just installed a couple of kc fog lights and the lights on the switches won't shut off. Where did I go wrong in my wiring? I followed the directions very closely. I'm pretty confused right now. Thanks.

Don't know what switch you're using or how you wired it, but it sounds like you have the line and load wires reversed on the switch.

I used the switches that look like stock switches. Red for power, white for the relay, and black for the ground. The kc kit has green and white wires going to the switch. The red is connected to the green and the white is connected to the white.

Try reversing the red and white.....red to white, and white to green.

That's what it was. Crossed wires. I'm an idiot. Thanks.

Sometimes it just takes seeing it from a different perspective. Glad you got it figured out.
