Radio resets when I use plow control

    Never had this problem before. I have been running my 2005 GMC with Western for 8 years. This morning and only certain times when I use plow control up or right and left sometimes the radio would reset. Go off then on. After plowing for 4 hours shut truck off and then got back in after 20 min. It did it again then the power lock unlocked and truck reved. Then the plow control power was off. Very odd.

    Just curious if anyone has experienced anything similar.

    Sounds like the plow is draining volts from the battery. Maybe a charging system test would verify that. Probably find that either the battery or alternator is weak.

    Thanks. Battery is only a year old so maybe alternator have not replaced that yet. Appreciate your response.
