    I have a 2002 f-250, with a 810 blizzard, mounted, new this year. Must add great plow. But today I was heading out to do a cleanup, going down the drive, the headlights went out, switched to truck lights still nothing, could it be a solenoid, maybe one of the three mounted up toward the grill? The turn/parking lights work, also yesterday when out plowing, crew leader said the radio would go off for a short period of time when he would move the plow, wonder if this was related, thank god the lights did'nt go out last night. Any clues, before it goes to the dealer? thanks

    Take it straight back to the dealer that installed it. Sounds like it has a wiring problem causing an electrical malfunction.

    If it's under warranty let the dealer fix it. Sounds like your hot wire was fused into a circuit with the bayonet pin and expanded the female end in the fuse box. Could be burnt headlight relay now too.

    update to above post, the headlights work on hi-beam only, I forgot to check that last nite, but still I'm on my way to the dealers.

    The radio could be a normal prob. I dont think the 2 probs are related. You may be able to fix the radio by adding a 2nd battery...Rob

    I already have 2 batteries, Diesel, but I was thinking along that line also, maybe taking too much juice. Anyways, took it to the dealer, found out it was a short in my drivers side plow light, and on a ford, they have seperate fuses for each light, for the low beams. So when it shorted out, it would blow the pass side also. If anyone has a problem, like this, find out what one is shorting out, and unplug it, put new 10 amp fuses and at least you will have one light to get home, Can't remember why he said the hi beams still worked, could get by with them also.
    Thanks for all the help. :)
