    I'm having a head light problem with my Boss 7'6" super duty on a '96 Ram 2500. The plow was installed a couple months ago and the plow lights worked until (of course) two nights ago when I needed to go plow snow. My truck lights have been acting up here and there but some jiggling on the on off switch would turn them on usually. By the end of the night, only amber lights were working on the truck or plow. I replaced the truck's head light on off switch and the wiring harness, which was fried. The truck lights now work fine and I was hoping that would fix the plow light problem but the amber lights are still the only working lights on the plow. Any ideas??? I'm pretty good with mechanical issues but wiring problems still confuse me a bit.

    First and easiest thing to do is to bypass the the plow light switch by disconnecting the two wire on it and connecting them together, if the plow lamps now work then the switch is bad or one of the connections were you disconnected the two wires are bad.
