    I did the conversion on the head lights and the plow. Now my fishstick will turn on but once a directional button is pushed it turns off. The lights come on but the plow will not move? any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    Converting The Plow to a 3 wire from a 2 wire. My truck has a 3 Plow Plug system. I was told by our local fisher dealer that this had to be done. What are symptoms of a bad motor? or relay?

    Check where you put in the plugs. making sure all wires have a good connections. Make sure all connectors you made have a good connectors. What was your old control. May need to look that wiring map & compair it to the new one. Make sure the color codes the same. Sound not the same.
