Angel Eye Question

So I have had my car for three years now the car came with angel eyes pre installed and they seem to work as the daytime running lights for my vehicle. So a lot of the wiring I do not know how its done. I want to be able to turn off and on my angel eyes with my blinkers and I do not want to have my daytime running lights on. If anyone can help me I'm a noob at electrical and also think the job was done incorrectly on the car as the angel eyes sometimes stay on after the car is turned off as if it were tapped into interior lights. Attached is a picture where it is tapped into

You need special angel eyes that have the "switchback" wiring. Mine often take time to turn off after the car is locked for some reason as well, but they will eventually turn off don't worry about it. I had preinstalled angel eyes when I bought the car then upgraded/updated mine with some from theangeleyeguy and then I started to experience my angel eyes staying on longer.

What type of headlights do you have? Prefacelift? Facelift? The AngleEyeGuy sells kits that really aren't that expensive at all and they are very easy to install if you don't have facelift styled headlights like me. He sells switchback as well as regular daytime running, also different styles including dtm, rgb, crystal, opaque, and standard. I got mine from him definitely check him out.
