    03' 2500 with 5.7. Check engine light keeps coming on and periodically the red lightning bolt flashes (throttle control?) and the truck needs to be shut down to re-set the flashing red lightning bolt. Re-starting re-sets the red flashing lightning bolt, but not the check engine light. Check engine light isn't flashing.
    I pulled the Boss V-blade off today and had difficulty getting the blade off. The switch made a noise, but didn't lower the frame off of the plow mount. Farted around with it for a while and had to pull the frame off of the mount. When the plow started to separate from the mount it shot sparks from the frame to the mount. With the plow off of the truck the check engine light and red flashing lightning bolt didn't come on for several miles. I thought for sure that it was a plow issue, but then both lights came back on.
    Any ideas?
