    I just hooked up my plow (Western 8'6) and the plow lights wouldnt work, I had the electrical plugged in from the plow to the truck and everything seemed ok, but they werent on and wouldnt turn on. Please help me out, any common things that could be wrong or anything would help! Thanks

    Loose lighting connector or connector is not on all the way??? Wiggle the connectors (with lights on)... And hopefully you will see action.

    Did u clean (with brake cleaner,etc) and re-lube the connectors with dielectric grease yet this season? I'd do this first !!! :)

    Make sure the prongs inside the connector are not corroded or broken. Ultramount or uni-mount?

    If none of the lights work its likely a bad ground.

    There's no current to the relays from the headlight, and no current at connectors to the plow, the plow itself works fine, I think it has something to do with the wiring off the left drivers side headlight?

    did you hook the brown wire from the plow harness up to the truck marker lights? With the headlights on you should have power coming in to the relays on the orange wire for low beams and the red wire for high beams.
