    I just picked up a used 25D and the plow works great. I'm having a problem getting the lights to work. The previous owner had a collision on the passenger side. The auto body shop that fixed his truck cut part of the light harness off. I have everything connected but one wire. It is a black wire on the passenger side with no end on it. I'm hoping that I can figure this out so that I don't need to purchase a new harness. I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe 4X4 new body stile. The harness is off a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4.

    The wire I'm holding is the black wire. I just lengthened it with a purple wire.

    Thanks for any Help.

    Is there a Part number tag on the harness anywhere?

    The only black wire I can think of in a light harness is the ground that connects to the relays. but there should be more then one unatacheed wire if that's the case.

    Does your harness have 2 relays or one?

    It should be a 991000529 harness on that truck, which should have two relays.

    The part #tag on my harness is: 96102993

    I only have one unattached wire, and one relay on the drivers side. Are you sure of the harness number? My locale dealer said that I need a 99100197 harness with a 99100411 adapter kit.

    I sometimes have problems with part numbers for my truck. Chevy did a half year switch on my model. Some trucks are the old stile and my truck is the new one. Sometimes its easy er to check the 2001 part number. I just want to make sure because I can't return it after purchase. I've given up on the harness I have and want to pick up a new one tomorrow.

    I forgot to mention, I live in Canada and my truck has day time running lights. The day time running lights are not on the headlights. They are a separate light under the headlights.


    Thank you

    I had this backward :eek: YOU HAVE the Chevy, the 0197/411 is correct.

    The 2000 GMC uses the 0529/592. so the headlight harness that came with the plow is wrong, Chevy didn't change to the 529/592 till 03.

    Sorry:blush2: I was thinking you had the GMC.

    Your DRL will operate as normal.

    I found the harness and adapter kit 99100197 + 99100411 in Buffalo NY. $123.00 for the harness and $77.94 for the adapter kit. The price was double in Canada.

    I checked the serial numbers on my plow A frame 25D108199 and Lights ALC111502. I just wanted to conform that these harnesses are correct hopefully without being a pain in the @$$.

    Thank You once again

    2 Qts, snoway fluid, or any of the premium plow fluids (Meyer, Western, Fisher, boss) which ever is easiest to find. Flushing with Meyer's Hydraflush between drain and refill is never a bad idea.
