    Greetings. I just bought a used Meyer ST-7.5 for a 92 Yukon with 4 headlights.
    The harness that goes into the passenger cabin has two wires sticking out of it, which go to the solenoid. The small ring obviously goes to the coil of the solenoid, and the large ring could go on either side of the contacts. Which side, hot or switched?


    Merry Christmas!

    You didn't specify which type of controller you have but judging by your post it sound's like you have the touch pad style controller.The wire with the large ring terminal should be an orange wire.Is it? If it is then it's goes to ground at the battery.It's NOT a power wire.

    Sorry, I do have a handheld controller, and yes, it is an orange wire. It does look like it goes to the controller. Good thing I asked first.
    I find it strange that orange is used for ground for the controller, and orange is used to power the headlight modules.

    I have been looking for a wiring diagram, but no luck yet.

    Thanks, B&B! I am still amazed that they use orange for hot and ground.
    Do you also have one for the lights?

    Well yes and no, I see your installing the plow on a 92' Yukon but I also need to know what style of plow light's you have. Nite saber's,Truck-lite's or what and if you have the actual Meyer light harness or some aftermarket type harness that hard wire's into the truck. And how many prong's are on the plow light switch...6 or 12. Let me know and I might have a diagram for you.

    Ahh, details I can answer. =]
    The plow lights must be night sabers. I believe I have actual Meyer wiring, since everything is neat and not crimped together.There are 3 connections on the switch, I have the modules for the headlights.

    Yeah, I seem to. I have layed out the harness and everything looks good. I am impressed with the design and quality!

    The previous installers didn't use any dielectric grease in connectors, and really liked crimp connectors.That is exactly opposite of what I like to do- solder and shrink wrap. If I do happen to use crimps, dielectric grease will keep that connection in good shape.

    I can't seem to pm you since the admins have this place locked tighter than a chastity belt, so send it to plowlightinfobb@hamsrc.com and I will close the hole after you send it.

    Thanks!
