Question windshield wipers come on when I turn head lights on

Im in need of some serious help. I Just got my car back from a body shop, I was testing the new fog lights, they worked, I plugged in the Mpx halo head lights Pass side didnt work, driver side does. I picked up the pass head light and it flickered twice it now its VERY dim, and the fog light doesnt work now. The driver side works great still. both head and fog. But now when I go to turn the head light switch ON the windshield wipers come on, and the wiper switch is OFF.

Does any one have a clue on what this could be? Maybe multi function switch but it doesnt make since cause driver side works. Any help will be amazing!

What work was done at the body shop?

If I'm not mistaken I believe there is a common issue with the wires being pinched and acting funny when people install BFMIC but I would not put it past the typical body shop guy to do what he had to do to get the job done in time such as stuff the wiring away.

your wiring is def messed up. as for the pas head light ether really bad ground or probly a loose wire in the relay or the switch itself. definatley check for a short in the wires as electricity takes least path of resistance. grab a multi meter and start doing voltage checks and resistance checks.

They aligned something up front and put a fender on. But it doesnt make sense since the fog lights were working fully. But im going to work on it now and see if I can find it. Any other help would be great

exact thing happened to me and it was a loose ground wire, so double check all your ground wire connections.

Shop changed my head gasket, did a bang up job, wife called me and said... um every time
i turn on the turn signal, or honk the horn the wipers come on.......

I was baffled... I popped the hood looked at my Hid ground, and saw it wasn't making full contact. I stripped it, reconnected it. And wham. Our car does weird shit when its not grounded

We should make it a sticky.. lol

Seriously, the 03's don't like the wire going from the engine block to the wiring close to the battery being loose or disconnected by any means. I had to solder mines twice to get it to work well.
