    First year with a Dodge Ram Minute Mount Set-up. Was having the plow sandblasted so I had to dis-mount. How do I get my truck headlights working again? The plow and wiring is completely disconnected! Was unable to find any switches?

    Not sure if it matters but did you plug the light bumper connector into the connector for controls? This should only matter on a 3 plug hook up.

    they should turn on as soon as you unhook the plow wiring? who wired your plow up? This is the first time you've removed the plow since it was mounted to the truck?
    plugging the two connectors shouldn't have anything to do with it, thats more just for storage so crap doesn't get into them.

    That's what I figured, yes this is the first time I've taken it off since buying it used last month.

    Not yet sir! No power in headlight harness at all. Its an older work truck, but need headlights clearly. Thinking of buying a spare male end of the headlight cable, then hard-wiring that into my truck headlights, then simply plug and play.

    You should be able to plug the trucks factory headlight harness back into your truck's lights, if it hasn't been butchered when installed. This should make your lights work again. This will give you some time to figure out where your plow wiring problem is.

    Looks like the plow wiring was butchered, just unplugged the harness and I have headlights, I'll just reconnect next winter!
