Whether you’re a heavy duty truck driver, or you just need to clear your driveway during the winter months, snow plow lights are an important part of heavy-duty safety. The problem is that these lights can be expensive and difficult to install. Installing them without a wiring diagram is even more challenging. Fortunately for all of us, this article addresses how to wire snow plow lights with ease!
Required Tools for Wiring Snow Plow Lights:
- Crimped Connectors
- Wire Cutters
- Electrical Tape
- Wire Strippers
How to Wire Snow Plow Lights:
The first step to wiring snow plow lights on your jeep is locating the power and ground wires. Typically, the red wire will be a hot lead that supplies power from an engine battery or other external source. The black wire usually serves as ground.
You can identify these wires by feeling for them with your hands in areas of insulation between metal objects like bolts and screws where they might lay hidden. If you find nothing there, use caution because it may mean that inappropriate materials were used during installation which could cause electrical problems later on down the road. It’s also possible that there are no exposed wires at all; this typically means someone has already found them before you did! In any case, take note of what color each wire is.
Easy Way to Find Jeep Plow Wires: It’s much easier if you take a voltage sensor and, with it touching the wire of interest (red for power, black ground), trace your way around each metal object until that section lights up on the screen. If there are any sections where no readings come back at all, use caution because it may mean that inappropriate materials were used during installation which could cause electrical problems later on down the road.
The next step in wiring snow plow lights onto your jeep involves running them from their current position through one or more switches before connecting them into a new extension cord that has been fitted with an inline fuse.
The final step in wiring snow plow lights onto your jeep involves installing the new extension cord with inline fuse into position so that it can connect to a power source and then running any necessary wires back down through holes drilled previously. Once all connections are made, you will need to re-attach those same metal objects (screws, bolts) which were loosened earlier during installation of the first switch or extension cord!
You’re done wiring your snow plow lights onto your jeep!
