    I have a unimount plow frame. The pump has the cables with a joystick. I am trying to figure out how to wire my headlights and can not find any diagrams that apply to my setup. Each headlight has 5 color wires: red white blue black and brown. Not sure what each one goes to. I do not have any wiring harness with it, each headlight has about a ft of wire and was then cut. please help

    Do you want to restore it to orignal western or just make it work? If you just want to make it work then open up the headlight housing and look at where the wires go. Or just find what colour the common ground is and then probe the others with power. That is to say, connect the ground to a battery negative and then apply 12V positive to each of the other wires and see what light comes on with each colour & make a list. Signals L & R, park, high and low beams.
