I'm not sure what you mean by "ba" lights, but at any rate, unless you are going to do some commercial level plowing, I would suggest using an emergency flasher or safety light that plugs into your accessory or cigarette lighter plug. The light attaches to the roof by way of a magnet, and the wire just drops down through the window opening. You can find extension cords for accessories in auto parts stores, so you can place the wire out of way. You can even wire in a female accessory receptacle into the factory switch.

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.

On my 1997 gmc truck when plow light switch is turned on one truck headlight goes out and plow light on that side comes on but other truck headlight stays on and that plow light does not come on..


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.

How do I get a hold of schematics for a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan? We need to see where the support beams are, the air conditioning and the electrical wiring is? We're trying to put up a permanent roof rack...


If the roof rack people don't have those diagrams, then they're not qualified to install a roof rack. Find another installer. The only place you can find them is in a factory shop manual. Those cost around $300. Or you can buy a short subscription to the Chrylser online site.

I cannot locate the valet switch to disengage the alarm.


    Preparing for the Installation
  1. Step 1 Gather materials. You will need scissors or a knife, crimps, solder material, solder gun, test light, drill, screw bit, screws, tie wrap, double-sided mounting tape and a voltmeter.
  2. Step 2 Read the installation manual that comes with the alarm. Make sure you understand what the instruction manual says. If you purchased the alarm from an automotive store, you can always ask them some basic questions to help you get started.
  3. Step 3 Call the tech support number for manufacturer of the alarm and tell the tech advisor what kind of car you have. Ask what kind of locking system your car uses and what color wire to connect to in order to interface the lock/unlock feature of your alarm,
  4. Step 4 Ask the advisor how to hook up the relay for the door lock feature, what color wire to connect to for the starter disable feature, and how to hook up the relay.
  5. Step 5 Ask how to set up the voltmeter to test the door lock wires.
  6. Step 6 Ask how to access the factory door triggers.
  7. Step 7 Determine where you intend to place the components by referring to the installation manual.
  8. The Installation
  9. Step 1 Mount the siren to a solid metal surface under the hood. Point the horn of the siren down toward the ground so that moisture cannot collect inside it. Drill a hole through a rubber grommet in the firewall of the car and feed the siren's wire through that hole into the passenger compartment of the car.
  10. Step 2 Connect the alarm's power wire directly to the car's battery. Feed the wire through the rubber grommet on the firewall and into the passenger compartment of the car.
  11. Step 3 Put a fuse on the power wire next to the battery. Check the installation manual for the fuse size.
  12. Step 4 Mount the shock sensor as described in the manual.
  13. Step 5 Drill a hole in the dash where you intend to place the LED status indicator. Feed the LED's wire through that hole and place the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the LED and place it over the hole in the dash.
  14. Step 6 Locate the wires that work the car's power door locks.
  15. Step 7 Connect the door-lock relay to the lock/unlock wires and connect the alarm wire to the relay in the manner described by the tech advisor.
  16. Step 8 Using the advice of the tech advisor, locate the wire that works the courtesy light if the alarm has current sensing.
  17. Step 9 Connect the current sensing line from the alarm to the courtesy light wire.
  18. Step 10 Locate the factory door triggers if the alarm does not have current or voltage sensing.
  19. Step 11 Connect the factory door trigger to the alarm.
  20. Step 12 Find the starter wire on the steering column some inches below the starter switch. Cut the line and connect the starter disable relay. Connect the starter disable wire from the alarm to the relay.
  21. Step 13 Mount the valet switch somewhere under the dash.
  22. Step 14 Connect all the wires to the proper inputs and outputs of the alarm module.
  23. Step 15 Mount the module to a sturdy surface under the dash using the drill, screw bit and screws.
  24. Step 16 Use the tie wraps to secure the wires of the harness and stuff it back under the dash.
  25. Step 17 Arm the alarm and test its performance.

Not sure how to hook up plow motor to battery? Its an old fisher speedcast plow with cable controls thats electic over hydralic.It has pos and neg. cables and a solenoid on the pos. cable. I assume you...


The heavy + should be connected to the battery through the solenoid for the motor. There should be wires to control the solenoid (an electric switch, you know). The - goes to the truck's frame at a place of your choice. The ground must be solid, you know that, right?

I think if I were doing this install, I would hook the plow ground with the battery ground on the fame or where ever it is located.

The plow control should be mounted for your convenience inside the cab.

Lets review: Plow motor | ground to ground, hot to solenoid (motor side) | solenoid (battery side) to battery | solenoid control wires to cab.
