    Had my plow from my '01 Chevy put on my '05. I bought the entire truck side new and had it installed. My plow is a 9-pin, that it is what was on my '01. Got it home, everything works except the headlights. Took it back, I was told I need the 12-pin. Dealer will swap the 9-pin that they installed for at no cost:cry: . They were the ones who told me the 9-pin would work. Question, what if anythig has to be done to the plow side for this to work?? If it needs a 12-pin plug how does that get installed?? Spliced in ? 'Thanks for any help.

    You'd also swap the complete plow side over to the 9 pin. I'm surprised they installed the 9 pin first as your truck is too new, a 9 pin wont work..

    Plow side is a 9-pin. Yes, I am very dissappointed in this whole deal. They are better than this. With the 9-pin everything works except when I turn my headlights on the highbeams or on in the plow lights, when I turn the highbeams on in my truck the lights on the plow go out, like the wiring was reversed or a bad relay.

    Right, that's because the harness's are different internally, it's not just the addition of 2 more pins/wires that make the 9 and 11 different.
