We have this issue on a few trucks, they are all newer F-250s with new steel caster electric spreaders. We have added work lights to the back of the spreaders and are having issues. Sometimes they don't work at all, sometimes they are very dim and the most common issue is they are on all the time, even when the truck is off and key is out. We decided to buy the fisher harness, part# 78381 and that has not changed anything. The one we are working on now is on a truck that has 200 miles and the spreader is also brand new, installed by a Fisher dealer. Harness is simple, red to red, black to black and the yellow harness wire to the gray module wire. What are we missing? It seems too simple. Waiting on a call back from Fisher but hoping to fix this soon. I can understand if something was installed wrong but this is happening to a few different trucks all installed by different people, one being the dealer. Any thoughts on what to try?

We just heard back from Fisher...He said that if you hook up lights without the relay, which I did at first, as soon as you power up the lights it melts the soldered connection inside the module and make the accessory wire hot all the time, even after you do it correctly and install the relay. He told us to unplug the yellow from the gray and try plugging it into the white (strobe lights) and now the lights work fine and can be turned on and off using the strobe button on the controller in the cab. Lesson learned I guess. You would think that since 99% of people install lights, they would have this harness and relay as part of the spreader package. We screwed up on this one but Fisher was very helpful with troubleshooting. I hope this post helps someone in the future...
