    Just installed my boss harness on my 98 k1500. Everything went together nicely, but when I went to check the head lights I have a problem. When I turn drl on they work fine. When I switch the head lights on I hear a pop my dash lights dim and then it goes through a roataion of pop dim lights. Btw the headlights are not coming on. I also now have a green light on my dash that looks like a headlight but I cant figure it out

    Do you have 4 or 5 relays in the BOSS wiring harness? New Plow? Used Plow?

    Did you have the key on ( run position ) when you tested the headlights?

    Are you talking about the dual burn wire? Or the headlight adapter. I have both correctly installed. It may just be the light control switch

    I have tested it in on and while running. When I switch the high beems on it sounds like a bad switch cycling on and off

    The Dual burn wire and the Figure 24. Vehicle Option Connector / top of page 14

    Are the relays buzzing on the plow wiring?
