running light problem.

so i installed a remote starter on my truck.when you hit the start button the running lights flash,then the engine starts.after it starts the running lights stay on until you put the key in and turn it on.to wire it like this i had to splice into the brown wire coming out of the headlight switch.this wire is for the running lights.i was driving to chilis with the lights on and i smelled something burning then it went right away.so i kept going and didnt notice anything.on the way home i realize i dont have any running lights.i still had brake lights and headlights though.so when i got home i decided to try the remote start to see if the running lights will come on,sure enough they did. i just dont see whats goin on here,they come on with the remote starter but once i turn the key on and pull the headlight switch out they shutoff? could the switch have burned up?what would cause this?all i did was tap into that brown running light wire.
