Problem w/t turn signals.

Ok over the week-end I instaled my new projector headlights and everything seemed fine but on my way to work I noticed a slight problem: If the lights are turned off the turn signals work just fine, turn on the lights and both turn signals come on and won't flash, hell even the warning flashers won't work if the lights are on. I drive a '03 230 SLK and the only wires I messed with durning the installation were the sidemarkers I tapped into to hook up my angel-eyes. Any ideas to what the hell is happening to me here?

No adapter was used, were would be a good place to look for one if I was to go that route?
No adapter needed, got it. I had to use the OEM turn signal housing but used the bulbs from the new headlights. When I go home tonight I'm going to use the old bulbs and see if that will clear up the problem. I've learned over the years it's always better to start off with the easiest solution first and work your way up. I'd love to jump in a time machince so I caould tell a younger, dumber me to check for a blown fuse BEFORE buying a new battery.
Problem solved, put the old bulbs back in and now works like a charm, thanks.
