angel eyes problem

I just got a set of MyCarr AE's from Tom at EAS, great customer service, thanks Tom. Now I'm having a problem after I got them all wired up.

When I connect the battery to the car, the lights won't shut off. I have the Red/White remote wire connected to the footwell lights red/blue wire. I also have the ECU red/white wire connected to the red with yellow dots. When I unplug the fuse, still on.... When I disconnect the ecu scotch lock red/white wire connector I hear the relay click, plug it back in, click.

With the Car off I verify that I'm not putting 12v from the two red/white remote wires and when I turn it on I am getting the 12v.

i think i've checked everywhere I can to see if I'm getting proper connections and I believe I am.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

DON'T hook up your trigger wire to your glovebox light, ALWAYS use your footwell light
