MOTOR RELAY AND VEHICLE BATTERY
CABLE INSTALLATION
4. Drill two 9/32" mounting holes using the motor relay
mounting plate as a template. Mount the motor
relay using 1/4" x 3/4" cap screws, washers, and
locknuts.
CAUTION
5. Route the supplied vehicle battery cable from the
grille or bumper to the location chosen for mounting
the motor relay, avoiding any sharp edges and hot
or moving parts. Cable tie only the end section
closest to the grille. Lengthening the vehicle battery
cable may be necessary on vehicles with batteries
located under or behind the cab. If lengthening
cables is necessary, use the same gauge wire as
the vehicle battery cable, and cover all connections
with dual-wall heatshrink tubing to prevent shorting.
Batteries normally produce explosive gases
which can cause personal injury. Therefore, do
not allow flames, sparks or lit tobacco to come
near the battery. When charging or working
near a battery, always cover your face and
protect your eyes, and also provide ventilation.
Batteries contain sulfuric acid which burns
skin, eyes and clothing.
Disconnect the battery before removing or
replacing any electrical components.
CAUTION
Overtightening terminal attaching nuts may
cause seal failure, resulting in premature
failure of motor relay.
NOTE: When instructed, make all snowplow
battery cable connections to the auxiliary battery,
if vehicle is so equipped.
6. Attach the red wire from the vehicle
battery cable to one of the large
terminals on the motor relay. Secure
with a lock washer and 5/16" nut,
and tighten to a maximum of
35 in-lb.
NOTE: For vehicles equipped with a tilt cab or tilt
hood, a service loop will be necessary when
making harness or cable transitions from the
cab/hood to the frame. Check the cable installation
for interference by raising and lowering the
cab/hood a number of times. Add anti-chafing
material (installer-supplied) as needed.
1. Turn off the vehicle ignition.
Red Vehicle Battery Cable
(Tighten nut to max. 35 in-lb.)
2. Disconnect both the NEGATIVE (–) and the
POSITIVE (+) battery cables.
NOTE: Use dielectric grease on all electrical
connections to prevent corrosion. Fill receptacles
and lightly coat ring terminals and blades before
assembly.
3. Choose a location on the vehicle where the motor
relay will be protected from road splash and debris.
Motor relay must be within 18" of the vehicle
battery. (The motor relay can be farther from the
battery if the battery cable provided with either the
plug-in harness or adapter kit is longer than 22".)
7. Route the black wire from the vehicle battery cable
to the NEGATIVE (–) battery terminal. Do not
connect at this time. On vehicles with the batteries
located under or behind the cab, connect the black
wire from the vehicle battery cable to the frame
using an existing hole or ground bolt. Prior to
attaching, clean away any paint or dirt to ensure a
good ground connection. The black/orange wire
from the vehicle battery cable will connect to the
mating connector on the vehicle control harness.
NOTE: Position motor relay terminals up,
horizontal or in between.

CAUTION
Molded Plug
Before installing self-drilling screws or drilling
mounting holes, check the selected mounting
area for any wires, hoses, or other obstructions.
Locate a flat surface within the engine compartment of
the vehicle for mounting the Isolation Module. For
example, the fire wall, fender well or radiator shroud are
possible mounting locations. If a flat surface cannot be
located, cable tie the Isolation Module to existing
brackets or harnessing. Reclosable fastener strips,
cable ties, and self-drilling screws are supplied for
mounting the Isolation Module. When using the
reclosable fastener strips, the mounting surface must
be free of dirt and grease. If using self-drilling screws,
install the screws in opposite corners if possible.

RECOMMENDED SPLICING PROCEDURE
9. Check circuits for continuity.
1. Locate wire to be spliced into.
10. Cover the splice with heatshrink tubing. The tubing
should extend beyond the splice on both sides.
2. Cut wire at least 1-1/2" from any other splice,
connector, or terminal. If wires are covered by tubing
or braid, remove enough of it to achieve the
minimum clearance required.
11. Using a hot air source, starting in the center and
working to either side, apply heat until the tubing
recovers and glue can be seen around the edges.
Allow the tubing to cool before handling.
3. Strip away 5/16" of the insulation from the ends of
the wires to be spliced.
NOTE: The splices supplied will accommodate
18-gauge wires as shown. For larger gauge wires,
cut the wire, strip the ends 3/8" to 1/2", and twist
together. Apply solder to the splice and cover
with heatshrink tubing.
4. Slide two wires into one end of the supplied parallel
splice.
5. Place a piece of heatshrink tubing (3/16" x 1-1/4"
long) over the remaining wire to be spliced. Cut
tubing into 1-1/4" lengths if required.
Splicing Procedure
6. Insert wire into the open end of the splice and crimp
using an appropriate crimp tool. One or two crimps
may be necessary to ensure a good connection. No
wire strands should be visible outside of the splice.

or DRL lamp
7. Preheat a soldering tool for at least one minute to
help promote even solder flow.
From plug-in
harness
Insert wires into splice.
8. Apply heat to the splice. Avoid heating too close to
the insulation. Apply solder to the wires. Use just
enough solder to produce an even flow through the
splice. Use rosin core solder ONLY. Do not use
acid core solder.
Crimp and solder each splice.
Butt Splice
Cover the splice with heatshrink tubing.
Using a hot air source, apply heat until tubing
recovers and glue can be seen around
the edges. Allow tubing to cool before handling.
NOTE: Avoid using an excessive amount of solder
as it can result in wicking. Wicking occurs when
solder travels up the wire core. This may cause the
wire to become stiff or brittle which could lead to a
broken or open circuit.
