Pls help! Pre-lci to lci headlight problem

I just put on some lci xenon adaptive headlights on my prelci that had xenon adaptive as well and when I got it coded for errors my right headlight would turn the opposite way of where I was steering the wheel. When turning left my right headlight would turn right and when turning right my right would turn left. Anybody experience this or would know how I would be able to fix this?

There's a switch on one of the headlights to switch it from rhd to lhd or vice versa

On second thought, it could be a faulty steering angle sensor

They make different headlights for European and U.S. applications.
