    I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 with a Boss 7'6" poly straight blade (RT3) with 11 pin connector. The main lights on my truck work, the signal and parking lights on both the truck and the plow work. The daytime running lights on the truck and the plow headlights don't work. Any ideas?

    It isn't a plow issue it's a truck issue. Could be a failed DRL module, light sensor or a combination of things.

    I just had the plow put on so it is a new problem since the plow installation. Thanks

    its a new install and they used an 11 pin harness??? Bad idea on an '03-up Dodge.

    should they have converted to a 13 pin? will that potentially resolve issues?

    They most certainly should have used a 13 pin. The 11 pin can cause issues with the very very sensitive headlamp systems on the '03-newer Dodges.

    Thanks very much for your help...i will have to go after them to fix this issue...it's funny because they initially talked about converting to a 13 pin and then didn't
