    Hi, I couldn't find anything using the search so, I have a C plow controller and wondered if it will work on an older straight blade. I'm also looking for a wiring harness.

    Thanks

    Are you needing a wire harness as 6 function or 4 function? Your c-controler will work on a straight blade.

    Thanks

    So you have a c-controller and are needing a wire harness for a straight blade? Right?

    Ya, all I have is an older straight blade w/ mount, grill plate, a really short power cable and a controller for a C-plow. I didn't get anything else with it. So if I'm right I need a plow side harness, truck side harness and a solenoid right?

    Yes you need a truck side power cable, solenoid, s-power red cable?, and underhood 4 function harness. Your plow should have 10 pin wire harness and a power cable on it unless they have removed them?

    They removed them ! I think the short cable is for the plow side though, but the 10 pin is gone, I have the two 4 pin light hookups and 4 individual wires.

    Sounds like you need most wiring for the plow and all for truck side. I wonder why they had a c-controller with the straight blade. Hope the controller works.

    will work

    it will work
    we have all hinikers on my trucks i have a c a v and a striaght all the controllers are interchangable
    but if your buying the new harness i would reccomend upgrading to the 6 function or buying the conversion cable for 60 bucks that way you can run and plow and plug in any controller
