    I have a 6'6 unimount plow. I am hooking up to a Dodge Ram and have a question on the wiring harness. I have 3 wires red,orange and purple coming out of the harness. I have hooked up the purple to the turn signal and it works. I am splicing into a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 ext cab. What wires off the Dodge do I splice the red to and the orange to? Also, the plow is fused into the cigar fuse but it kills the radio for a short time. Should it be fused to the parking light fuse?

    First of all, a 6-6 blade is way to small for a full size truck

    Purple is left turn, red and orange should go to relays. Have you tried westerns site for schematics
