generator light stays on

I recently upgraded to an MSD ignition system and at first my car would not turn off. So after installing the small diode I get with the kit, I can now shut the car off but the generator light stayed on while running. When I took the diode back out to double check, the car ran fine and the generator light was off while running but would not turn off again. Any suggestions??

I tried several different ways, but this way it still shuts off. Everything works like it did before except for while running the light stays on. As soon as i remove it, the car won't turn off but the light will be off while running. Does this diode maybe act like a bit of a resistor in a way, making the idiot light think that the alternator isn't charging enough??
