Thanks Mitchelkitman, you're absolutely right, that is how it works. The problem I had was that the voltage was too high at 12v in the 'normally live' coil circuit at the end of the ballast wire,...

I think I expected the headlights to automatically switch off with the ignition off so you don't flatten the battery if you accidentally leave them on.
