    Ok Guys, need a little help.

    Have an 11 pin that the black plug went bad.

    Now, 5 of the wires match - plow side to truck side (colour to colour).

    The other 6 wire's - Plow side are solid colours - Truck side are striped (ie blue with white stripe).

    Purchased it used, so I have no idea if and when or what has been replaced. Worked great for a year, but had to rewire around the plug with 1 wire the end of last year. Want to replace it to prevent future problems.

    2 controllers, 1 stick and 1 3 button toggle

    Any diagrams out thier that show both versions of the wiring to make the match up simple for me?

    Is the truck side 13-pin by chance? By your example it sounds like it is. Post both the truck and plow side colors you're working with. If they don't add up then someone has been in it before.

    if the ether of the wiring on the truck or the plow have a mesh loom with a yellow tracer it would be a 11 pin wiring. I think B&B is right you may have a 13 pin. Boss has a realy good web site with manuals

    Yea sorry, it is a 13 pin. The smart hitch was disconnected and we put it on for the winter and it stays on so its not a problem.

    Could not find exactly what we needed on Boss site.

    So we just cut the plugs back to expose the wires/pins and then the matching was much easier.
