Is there anyway something is wired back in backward? Do you thing the ballast would have anything to do with it?

From what I see 1 and 3 are the switch on the relay for the lamps, check to make sure it didn't short. The only other thing is the lamp socket may be no good, try cutting into it jump before the bulb and jumping directly to the lamp with jumpers..
