    Just got the wideout installed on my 03 f250. Everything is hooked up but I can't get the controller to turn on. The headlights work but the opposite blinked comes on when the turn signal is on.. any ideas????

    ok trace ur controller harness under the dash. there is a red wire that comes out. make sure that is hooked to ignition power. that turns the system on. and as for ur turn signal you have to reverse the wires on the harness. the tap right into your turn signal harness at the truck lights under the hood. very simple fix but the person hooking the plow up should have checked this stuff. also you need to turn the plow on every time u start ur truck.
