    The wire harness is pretty self explanatory, but pertaining to where the wire go on the solenoid I'm a little Lost. I can tell where the power wire's go, but there are 3 or 4 little white wires, trying to figure out where they go. If anyone has any pictures or insight on this that would be great. Just info this is a 2008 9'2" V-Plow that I'm getting ready to install.

    Your small whites go on one small stud on the solenoid and your brown goes on the other. Doesn't matter which ones you choose.

    Pertaining to the turn signal and parking lights, I'm having trouble figuring out which wires are which? Any insight would be great. For both the passenger and driver side.

    On the plow or truck harness?

    Don't know what you're installing it on but the plow side would be:

    L turn: Purple
    R turn: Pink
    Markers: Yellow

    Pertaining to the solenoid power wires. Does it matter which one goes on which side? From the battery to the solenoid, and solenoid to the plow.

    Depending on which side marker light you're tying the purple wire into..
    • L marker: white/yellow
    • R marker: white/grey

    Turns:
    • L turn: white/light green
    • R turn: white/tan
    Double verify these with a test light as Dodge enjoyed changing the wire colors mid year for no good reason. :rolleyes:

    Makes no difference, either stud is fine.

    Thanks. That made it easy. I used a voltmeter and think i have it figured out as well. The blacks are the grounds, ( looks like there is a brown line on them), the middle wire is for the parking (which is the same color you mentioned), and the other one is for the turn. I think I'm good. Appreciate all the help.

    Good deal glad you got it all connected. Hope you used plenty of shrink wrap and/or di-electric grease for max long term corrosion protection.
