    I am not new to plowing but this plow is new to our fleet. I installed a western unimount relay style harness on my 01 ram 1500 Off Road edition (yes i know 1/2 ton OMG) I wired everything up and the plow goes up down no issues and shakes a lot from left or right (not really my problem but suggestions here would be nice lol). So i turn on my head lights the truck lights go off and only my passenger plow marker light goes on. Now if i hit my turn signal the light blinks as it should. If i hit the high beams still nothing on the truck or plow just the lonely stoner marker light that can blink on command Thumbs Up . Any suggestions on where to start or what to check greatly appreciated. Our other plows are ultramounts with isomods so this is a bit diffferent :help:

    How many headlight relays are there in your harness?

    There are four relays all jumbled together the man I bought the plow from was a mechanic and when he took the harness off left everything nicely sorted out so I just layed the harness back out and rebooked it all up as was labeled. His labels matched the western diagram I had.

    You have more issues than headlights so you should check all the different pins at the grill plug for power. Check western website for mechanics guide.

    Electrical contact cleaner and a pick. Then dielectric grease.
