Trouble installing fieldgoal wiring harness

So I installed fieldgoals daytime running light harness, but it's not working. I've gone back over and double checked everything and I'm pretty certain its wired in correctly. With the harness installed however, the daytime lights do not come on AT ALL. If I undo the male and female connectors and reattach the stock configuration, they work. However, with headlights on or off, the daytime running lights will not come on with the harness installed. I would think that even if I somehow had made a mistake with the 12V and grounding wires, that the lights should still function as they do normally, and come on when the car is operating without the headlights on.

Any ideas beyond I really did somehow miswire something, or somehow the unit is bad? Thanks!

Did you add the fuse to the black holder? What you are reporting here is what happens when you do not install the fuse. Just saying....

Installed the fuse, but still not getting anything. Hoping I didn't bust something running it without the fuse initially.

Lights still work normally when I go back to the stock configuration. Argh...

just sent you a PM, also take the relays out of the socket and re seat them, they may be loose.

Did you figure it out? Post the solution here so others who may have problems can learn also.

Yeah, sorry for the delay, haven't had a chance to go out and play with it for a few days. Fieldgoal was spot on, I tightened the ground wire down with a ratchet and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the help!
