    check your relays what kinda wiring is it?

    it should switch the lights over when your lights are powered on.

    the parking light wire sends a signal to the relay to switch the power over from the vehicle lights to the plow lights

    May need to put in a Truck to Plow lights switch. Most 1 pair of Snowplow Lamps come with switch & wiring map. Just need to put on 2 a 5-pole or 6 pole wire connectors. 6pole one is for those that have a lighted plow guide. White or Black is always ground wires, Blue wire are turn sinal, Yellow are Parking lights, Green Low Beam, Red = high beam, Brown = lighted plow guides to parking lights.
    Grote 1 pair 64261-4 part number. The connectors makes it for easy removal for off season storage.
