    Wireing my new plow. The directions completely slip over power cables to pump motor. Does the harness with the black/ornge wire along with the two batt cables go on the truck side. Thanks

    Yes it goes on the truck side. Should be female for the connector on the battery cables.

    The vehicle side battery cable has one large black one and a small black with orange stripe. The small wire should have a quick connect plug that joins with one of the other harnesses. I think it goes to the end of the wires by the main pump motor power relay. Have a look at the booklet that comes with the headlight harness. The manual should be two in one. The one side is for 3 port isolation module with "three plug system" and the other says "two plug system." Thtere is a detailed diagram of the whole vehicle wiring system there including adapters, relays, fuses and plugs. That is what I rely on more than the step by step instructions. Hope that helps.
