    Well my friend has a 93 chevy 1 ton dump truck 4x4. its a unimount system and we're having problems with the wiring harness. when we hook up the plow the lights don't switch over to the plow lights but all the plow functions work. i know everything on the plow works, cause we've hooked it up to my truck no prob and everythings fine. I've checked the relays and i pretty sure everything is wired right no splits in any wires or anything, so any help would be great at this point thanks

    Do the markers on the plow work when it's on the '93? No high OR low beams correct?

    yes there are no high or low beams on the plow with it hooked up. but on the truck side it'll go back and forth and i have all the plow functions up, down left right, just the lights im havin trouble with. im not sure about the marker lights ill go check in a bit, but i cleaned up the ground to the truck, the orange and black wire that comes off the solienoid. not sure what else to do?? ill check the marker lights tho. any ideas?
