    Lights

    I just went through three hours of this and found a bad ground in the headlight. Check your grounds.

    Poor or corroded connection on the brown ground wire (should be on the negative battery terminal) or corrosion/poor connection in the relay sockets. Or possibly a bad relay.

    My neighbor had this. It was a broken ground wire in the harness on the plow. He replaced the harness for another issue and it fixed the lights.
