HD headlight harness

Is anyone using one of these harnesses?

I decided to get one from LMC and am wondering if I made the right choice. After installing it how I think it should go, I turned on the lights and everything seemed to work fine. I waited till dark and took it out for a test drive, and the lights appear brighter for the short ride I took. But, while driving I flipped on the brights, and they are alot better, but when going back to dim, the brights stay on, the dims and fogs also come on when going back to dim. Here is where I can't figure it out, if I turn off my fog lights everything works fine, but when the fog lights are on, the lights will not come off bright, when I put them on dim everything comes on. I still have the stock style bulbs and headlights, and this is the harness I got http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/de/full.aspx?Page=46

Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions?

Thanks for any and all help

Bad ground... Or did the relay stick or something?

It works fine when the fog lights are off, but when the fog lights are on the brights will not turn off. I hooked the ground back to the battery, thought that would be the best. But everything works perfect with the fog lights off, but when they are on the brights will not go off after turning them on.

Sounds like a mis-wired setup... Fog lamps shouldn't effect it...

I wouldn't have thought the fog lights would bother it either, o well. May go back to my stock stuff, it works lol. Till I can figure this out.
