    2011 F450 with the VXT....had the same problem two winters in a row now. Ever since I installed the plow when you have the headlight switch (plow light switchover) and turn the headlights on they go on and right off. If I turn the lights off and back on they work. Odd but no big deal. Once a winter (today being that day with 3-5 coming it decides to give me nothing. Did it's usual blink on and when I turned off and back on I got nothing. Now I have no headlights at all...truck or plow with switch on or off....ideas? Ford dealer says it's a plow issue and Boss dealer says it's a truck issue and I have no lights either way....help! Thanks!

    Check the head light connection( truck side ) where the head light adapters connect to factory headlight harness and head light had this problem a few times bad connection and had to replace .

    Woohooo I have headlights...we'll kinda. Found the adapter and wiggled it and got the truck lights back. The plow lights work but I still have to do the on off once to get them to stay on. Think I need to replace that adapter or something else? It's not a relay sticking because I've changed then out with no change in function.

    I had to replace my adapters 2times now on my 06 dodge. Last time I acctually had to cut and replace one of the plugs on the truck side due to corrosion build up for bad connection. I would say yes repaceing the adapterswould be a good place to start . Glade I was able to give some guidance from having same issue just on a different truck
