    I have a 2000 Ford F350 with a 7.3 powerstroke. I bought a used western unimount plow and the wireing it was off a truck identical to mine. i hooked up all the wireing. the plow itself works great but the lights WILL NOT WORK. I have them hooked up right from wat i know but they dont worrk. My truck lights still work evan when the plow is hooked up. I did notice that there are two wires hanging it looks like they mite be cut but im not sure, there are by the headlight plug-ins. I need help cause I have too plow 6 drive-ways. if you have ANY helpfull info please ket me know. Thanks

    Should have been 1 brown, 1 grey on the drivers side and a purple at the passengers side.

    They grey and purple are for turn signals and need to be tapped in to the truck.

    the brown is for marker and power to the relays and needs to be taped into the truck marker lights and then everything will work.

    You need the brown marker light wire connected or else the relays wont work to switch the head lights over.
