I ain't no sparky myself, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night...
Maybe try going with an ignition = on circuit to pull power for your switches. I did that with my DIY harness and had no battery drain issues. It's a little late in the evening for a photo hunt, but I'll check which slot I used in the fusebox to run power into my switches
I'm wondering if having constant contact with the battery terminals is where your drain issues are coming from. Maybe hooking up the grounds to a grounding screw somewhere on the body instead of the neg terminal on the battery would help.
I'd go through each connection with a meter and make sure you're getting current through to where you need it so you can pinpoint the problem. They're cheap, and they'll save you tons of time staring at the system wondering where the failure is happening.
When you say only one of the hi/lo is working, do you mean one light, only hi or only lo? Could be you have a bad relay. Did you wire the harness yourself, or is it the plug and play sort of stuff?
Like I said, I ain't no sparky, but them's my two cents.
X2 on the above. Is the the switch lighted? In other words, is it supposed to be lit at night when your dash lights are on? If so, and it's wired wrong, the switch's lamp may be on full time drawing down the battery.
