    i had to hard wire my plow lights into my truck lights and now when i have them both on they will be fine for a couple minutes then all of a sudden they will go nuts flickering both the plow and head lights. but when i unplug the plow lights everything is fine on the truck side.

    any recommendation on where to look? my guess is the relay is getting overloaded?

    My money is on bad ground and/or a corroded scotch lock connector at the running light connection (truck side)
