That is most likely the cause of your problems then. Controller lights staying on after the console has been switched off is a known issues with some of the older rechargeable MS battery packs. I did a ROL controller mod for a friend once and had the same issue. At first I thought I'd shorted something while soldering but after a little investigating I discovered that others had had the same issue and it was a faulty battery pack. Just Google it and you'll find plenty of people posting about it.
