    I have a meyer classic mount and my right turn/park light does not work on the plow. The lights do work on the truck. The light on the other side does work. I have been through the wires and checked the plugs. Still nothing. Any suggestions?

    Did you change the bulb? Sometime's the simplest thing's are the one's that give you the biggest headache's. Check the ground wire coming out of the right side harness too.

    Yes I did replace the bulb and still nothing. I traced the ground wire, checked it with a continuity tester and it is fine. Still no lights. I think I may try to splice another ground off of the ground and hook it elsewhere on the body.

    Using a ::::; Volt Meter:::::; remove the bulb(s) and check for power at each contact point on the bulb recepticle. If you have a needle point on the + side of your volt meter line you can stab the +12(voltage) wire thru the outer shielding before the bulb connector and see if it has power.

    Yep, Those quick splices are garbage, you'd be much better off soldering them for a more problem free connection.

    Yes, that will be one of my boredom projects later this week. What is a good solder to use on electrical connections like this? Thanks for the help

    You can use a small diameter rosin core solder for anything electrical. Make sure it say's ROSIN core and NOT acid core. The acid core solder will actually corrode the connection.
