Cycle county electric lift question

    Hi,
    I just bought a cycle country plow with the electric left for a Yamaha Wolverine 1997 350. I have it all installed but in the directions it states to connect the yellow wire that is an accessory switched power to a wire that is live when the iginition switch is on. I guess I have to go buy a meter to find the live wire. When I do find a live wire how would I attach it? They provide a blue connector of some sort.

    Also I hope that after I attach this yellow wire the lift will then work as it now does not operate.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can temporarily connect the yellow wire directly to the + battery terminal to test initial operation. They only want it permanently connected to a switched power wire so it can't be operated with the key off.

    snowpusn420,
    You leave your hoocked up directly to the battery? Can that drain the battery?

    Thanks

    I dont see how, it only draws when you push up or down... If you have the newer one with the relay then you must use the ign. power.. I have the old one with the wiring directly to the switch

    Thanks for all the replies. I just hooked it up to the line to goes to back light. so I will have to turn the lights on when I use the plow.
