    my plow has always worked good.
    but the other day i was going down the road and turned the plow.
    i lost power to the control box and lights.
    when i inspected the fuses they were good. but i noticed a thin orange wire not hooked up.
    not sure where it goes.
    i changed out the solenoid.
    now what i get is if i jump the solenoid with a screwdriver bolt to bolt it overrides it and i can work the plow.
    but without hooking the orange wire to a power source i dont get any power to the box or toggle switch.
    can anyone help with an idea?

    That is a common problem if your orange wire is mounted to the radiator support in the front or on the top, the wire corrodes and will eventually will break off. Make sure you use dielectric grease on the new connector.
