V plow to straight blade

    I have all the wiring from a 2005 chev for a V blade. It is a 2 plug system. I have a friend who wants to put it on a 2009 chev and run a straight blade that is 3 plug. What works and what needs to be changed and any idea on price?

    Thanks

    Is the 2 plug relay or fleet flex? Vplow MVP or MVP plus?

    If its a MVP plus it would be the multiplex/ fleet flex. So are you sure it's that? Relay not be on the MVP plus. How many pins or holes on each plug? Picture?

    I can count the pins tomorrow, everything is at the shop.

    This is what I know I have.
    Isolation module 29070, 3 port
    wiring harness 28027-2 and 26357 in port A
    I can't find #'s for the one's in B & C but they are for the truck lighting. I also have a wiring harness for the battery that has the square plug for the joystick. It's #28257 is what I wrote down but I thought it was 28357, I typed it on my phone so I might have typed it wrong.

    When you ask about relays, do you mean like the real old plows, I don't have any of those.

    Thanks for the help.

    I guess that looks easy enough. I was hoping of selling what I have and him making it work.
    Thanks for the help.

    Sorry misunderstood, thought you wanted to use both style setups.

    the wiring you have wouldn't really do him any good. everything would be different except the module itself.

    It is an 11 pin, I guess I should have looked at the other plug too, just assumed it was 2 but now I remember it could be more. I will look tomorrow.

    The one plug is 11 pin and the other is 4, 2 large and 2 small.

    Yes that is the fleet flex/multiplex.

    Is it possible to make this work or does he need new wiring?

    There would only be a few things that would be usable. Problem is that the headlight I believe is different so the headlight harness isn't going to work and then the control harness is different from your MVP plus to his straight blade. It just wouldn't be worthwhile.
