Heated Seat hookup gone wrong?

So I had a pair of heated seats hooked up this past monday, only to find out tonight that the heating element switch is illuminated at all times (even car off). Heating elements work only when car is on.

I've also noticed I cannot program the courtesy seat option to off and is stuck on 'on' for the EVIC, which may relate to the problem.

Any clues what could have gone wrong? I turned off my auto light switch but that did nothing, is it possible ot just unplug the bulbs so I don't kill out the battery?

Those are LED and won't run down the batt. So no worries there. I have no clue why they would be on though.

To change those options using the EVIC, your BCM has to be '01 or newer.

Its in my 02 intrepid ES w/ 04' special PCM and std BCM, I don't know what year the EVIC is (it has IMPG not WPS, so probably an 01').

Seats are from a 99.
