    I bought a ph1 810 that didn't have plow lights. So I got a set of hinker lights that were a direct replacement. The problem I'm having is that the high beams don't work. I go to turn the highs on and it just flips back to my truck lights. I've replaced the relays and it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

    It's a 2005 silverado 2500hd. Not sure what adapter it is though. I know it's the right one though cuz they guy I ought the plow from had the same truck as me.

    Same year?

    You've got a ground wrong. Either in your Hiniker lights pigtail or in your headlight adapters.

    You know theres 2 gnd wires in there right. The white wire branches off to the headlights and marker lights.
    Did you have to remove the headlight connector? Like pull the pins outta the plastic keeper?

    No I didn't have to do that. The weird part about this is that when I pull my dimmer at switch back to flash the brights all 4 bulbs come on no problems but when I push the switch forward to use just my brights it flips back to truck lights. Does it still sound like a bad ground?
