    Hello,

    I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado. When I turn my lights on only my high beams work and I cant turn the high beams off. I disconnected the plow lights from the left side and hooked it back up OEM. When I did that I was able to make the lights on the truck function properly. I hooked the left side back up and did the same thing to the right side. However, the high beams were still stuck on when I put the right side back to OEM. I gather that there is something wrong on the left side. Has anyone had this problem before?? Im not sure if it could be the change over module or not. I know they have internal fuses that could blow and not make the lights work, but to keep the bright lights stuck on is another thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    I don't seem to get many takers:laughing: maybe cause they know the odds are they will have to payup

    Because it's new doesn't necessarily mean it's correct. What's the p/n so we can positively identify the harness?

    Your numbers correct however I would check the adapters themselves as with Meyer I've seen both the incorrect adapters in the kit as well as the adapters themselves pinned incorrectly in the plugs.

    This is a new body style (GMT800) truck correct?

    High AND low beam?

    Should my plow lights have high and low beam?

    The best I can recall, when the plow lights are on, I only have low beam, if I toggle the OEM high/low switch, the plow lights go off but the truck lights also stay off. When I turn off the plow lights, the truck lights funtion as designed.

    Plow lamps made in about the last 25 years have both high and low beam so yes you should have both unless they're something extremely old.

    Truck is a 99, I suppose the plow was bought new at the same time.

    Thanks, I will do some checking. Do you think the high beam is out on the bulbs or is there a relay? I will start checking fuses also.

    Assuming it has the under hood modules to loose the lamps on both sides you'd have to have two defective modules or both bulbs are blown. Neither would be unheard of but go over all the connections first and then check right at the plow lamp bulbs for power and ground on both beams.
