Headlights dont go off!

Hey guys. Im having a wiring problem right now. I installed a painless wiring kit and am having problems with the headlight switch (standard headlights). When I hook up the battery and connect the headlights, they wont go off. It seems like nothing I do works but the high/low beam switch on the floor works fine. I thought it could be a bad ground so I jumped a wire from the switch to body and it doesnt seem to matter. This is a brand new switch so I tried the old one (that was working fine when I took it out) but nothing changes it... Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks...

Oh I forgot to mention that it has to be something with the switch because when I unplug the switch, the headlights go out...

Well, the wires were in the right spot but one of them had come loose and wasnt making a connection... Thanks for the suggestion.
