    Hello All,

    i have the rt3 Boss plow and i am trying to figure out where to splice or place it in the fuse box. i have a 2003 ford excursion 6.0 diesel. Honestly this is a little confusing because even in Boss's tech section it says there is a blue/white wire that i need to connect to. There actually is no such wire.

    The original owner took a wire that has a "fused like end" and must have installed in in place of a fuse which he attached to the black/red.

    If That can be done which fuse hole could i put it in.

    Thankyou for your helpThumbs Up

    Is there a inline fuse on that red/black wire? If not add one. You can get one at autozone or napa. Put a 15 amp fuse in the holder. Then just connect that wire to any keyed ignition source. Like the heater, or something along those lines. Make sense?

    I'm not much of a Ford guy, but my buddies who have the Ford/Boss combo have it spliced into the windshield wiper fuse.
