Default I Really Need Help... No Lights

ok i have a suzuki forenza 2006. i was installing a car alarm and i got everything to work perfectly lights too. so i take the car for a spin making sure things work fine turn it on off get out test the doors you know everything. well one time i started my car and on the way back from around the block i herd a click from my alarm module and my lights cut off. i have not been able to get them to work since. the high beams work the blinkers work the day lights work. So the low beams and inside the car the speedometer doesn't light up. in the instructions it said connect some purple wire to my parking lights which are in my headlight switch. i found three wires a white plug thing a black one a green and black one and a white one. i connected the purple wire to the white because when i probed it it went from pos to neg when i turned on my parking lights. Well turns out the alarm module was set up for positive parking lights and i have negative so i guess that did SOMETHING to my lights. well i switched the alarm module to negative parking lights. and now when i lock or unlock the doors the parking lights and the speedometer lights up. but while driving and i try to turn on the lights nothing comes on. the only way to get the speedometer to light up is by pressing a button on my remote, and the headlights never come on. all the fuses look good. i talked to a guy and he said it may be my headlight switch. CAN ANYONE HELP ME. either fix what is wrong or tell me an inexpensive fix. figured the dealer would say i voided the warranty by trying to do it myself.

i see all the post about the cluster gauge and clipping the three red wires... well should i try this? i don't want to clip them and tape em together and still get nothing... also say taping them together works. now do the lights operate like normal? or are my lights always gonna be on when the car is on? and lastly what about my speedometer if i take the red wires tape em together and get the headlights working will my speedometer light up now too. cause it's hard to drive at night and you can't see how fast your going

so i took out the cluster guage and looked for the wires everybody was looking for. i don't know how it was so easy for everyone else. that whole back there is really small or i just have fat hands... anyways looking back there i only saw 2 white things one on the left and one on the right. everybody has said left so i went with the one on the left. i was unable to pop it off like they had talked bout. and my white clip from what i could see didn't look burned. it also had bout 6 or seven wires in it on it's left side of it and three purple wires by there lonesome on the right. so not sure if this was what i was posed to be lookin for i stuck three paper clips to the metal inside of the white thing where the purple wires were goin and touched the other ends together. and the lights did not turn on with the car on or off so i guess those are the wrong wires or that's not my problem?

I would not worry about the 3 purple wires they are not your problem, if they were your Day time runners would not work either

look under your dash at your alarm module, it should say what kind it is.

i will look at the module tomorrow when it's light out ... umm yea i checked my fuses well under the hood i checked the easy ones that said lights or low beams the one with the wire ... they all looked good but i have a big one that's grey that says headlight .... it's a big block like one i didn't know how to check that since i couldn't see inside. but i switched it with the one that was for power windows and they still didn't come on... figured that one was good since my power windows work. i don't think there are any fuses for lights on my fuse box inside

i took it to the dealer and paid for a diag and all they told me was there is after market things installed on your car and that could be why it's not working. we would have to trace back the wiring and figure out where the problem is and fix it and that would cost bout 300 dollars. so i'm not sure if i got my money's worth out of the diag or not cause they told me aftermarket stuff may have caused the problem well i knew that. and they still didn't tell me how to fix it or why it's not they don't come on
