SOURCE: On my 1997 gmc truck when plow light switch is

This is just an idea, I may be wrong but any input is helpful, right? I would think that the switch that controls the plow lights is designed to alternate between the circuits for the truck light and the plow light. If the trucks headlight switch is turned on then the circuit is closed and turnes on the light. When the plow light switch is turned on it may cut the hot side of the circuit going to the headlight and engage the hot wire to the plow light. The headlight and plow light may share a common ground. If they don't share a common ground then the plow switch may cut the ground wire opening the circuit. If you can't find a solution you can always wire the plow lights directly to the battery with the same switch or a new toggle switch and then turn on the parking lights only on the truck. On most GM cars and trucks there is a space in the fuse pannel that is for a power accesory. It is basically a fuse slot that is empty labeled ACC. This is a 12V hot power source and you would run the positive wire here then ground the neg to the chassis. This way if you forget to shut off the toggle it will cut the hot when the key is shut off. When running the wire it is near the hood release able and you may be able to run the wire thru there and not drill a new hole. I've done this for neon lights under cars as well as stereo systems requiring an amplifier. If you drill a new hole even though its under the hood I would put a little blue RTV silicone over the new hole to prevent moisture from getting past the fire wall or road salt.

SOURCE: My headlights won't turn on, the yellow

First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

Meyer plow troubleshooting


Number one the plow headlights should be seperate from the vehicle. Get a new harness for the plow on ebay for cheap and have it installed. In the long run it will be cheaper.

My fisher plow control unit will not turn on


I have the same problem, I do see the power light come on when I hit the key to start the truck but it goes out when I let off the key. If I park it in the garage with the furnace on it stars working and is fine until I don't won it for a day or two then its dead again. No idea why control is dead or sitting in garage with the heat on gest it working.

Lights on a fisher xtreme plow wont work


I'm guessing that you have already checked to make sure there is power going to the plow lights. If not use a test light and make sure. The most likely problem is the grounds from the plow lights themselves to the frame. Take the lights apart and check and/or replace the grounds, wires inside the case take a lot of vibration and that can cause them to fail.Don't forget to check the bulbs to be sure they're good too. Hope this helps.
