    So I got the wires hooked up and in the process of hacking the push plates to fit on my truck. I hooked up to the plow wiring today and the plow lights don't come on at all. There is power at the light but my test light was blinking when I tested the plow lights ground. It was also blinking when I stuck it in one of the pins in the truck side connector for the lights. Does the selinoid need to be grounded? It's a 4 port 3 plug wiring. The ground wire for the 2 pin plug has a good ground.

    He test light blinks like a directional would. And there's only one ground which is the big wire from the 2 pin plug with a a small wire that goes to the 1&2 port. Yes the ground is good and shiny. The passenger side headlight keeps screwing up too. When all of the plugs are connected, the truck lights shut off but the plow ones don't come on.

    the test light might be blinking b/c the brain cant sense the resistance needed.
    might try flipping your tk to plow connector around from A to B

    I'm just thinking that there's something that's supposed to be grounded that I'm not seeing here

    This is the plug. Sorry I'm not really wrapping my head around this. The male end has a slot in it that fits into the key on the female end. Should I cut and switch the wires?
