    I have a 1997 Ford F350 diesel dump with a Fisher 9' minute mount plow, I can only get either the plow lights or the truck lights to come but not both together. On low beams truck lights are on and when I switch on the high beams the plow lights and the parking lights on the truck come on but no head lights. I bought one new solenoid and switched the two on my truck out one at a time but problem still persists, please help as i am new to this.

    You shouldnt be able to get the plow headlight and the truck headlights on together. Sounds like the relays are not wired correctly, best bet is to go to westerns site and check their mechanic/trouble shooting guides for a 2 relay harness.

    As was previously said, you shouldn't have truck headlights and plow headlights at the same time. Sounds like you might have other problems, but it's always good to make sure the plow's electrical connectors at the grill are clean and tight. My plow headlights went out while plowing friday - I unconnected from the grill, sprayed them with WD40, and back in business.
