    Ok I know this is probably a stupid question to some of you I get it . I bought a 40 inch light bar and it's now mounted and everything under my hood . I ordered a rigid harness and wired it (red positive wire) directly to my red upfitter ( under my dash I did yellow to red) and grounded my black wire ( tried negative on battery and fender bolts) . Here's my issue , my light bar won't turn off. It's fully on 100 % of the time and my axillary switch in the cabin always has the orange light on no matter the position (on or off) as soon as the key is turned . Yes all my connections are fine... I hAvent soldered any of them because I was going to do that after everything is working properly ... HELLLLLLP ohhhhh and I got rid of the relay and switch that came with the harness by cutting away everything but what attaches to my bar ( so basically I just wired it strait to the up fitter)

    Remove the wire fRom the battery post and only use the fender bolt as the ground.

    Recheck the wiring under the dash, you've goofed up there. The switch should not be powered when off.
