no lift or turn

I just hooked up my snowdogg snow plow for the upcoming season. The lights work, but it wont lift or turn either direction and the status on the controller has a double fashing red light. Anyone have any ideas what may be wrong?

check the connection between the plowside and truckside harness. The flashing light shows that it is unable to communicate with the plow.

I checked it several times, and noticed a little moisture but tried to dry it out with a rag. How important is the di-electric grease?

very important as it helps prevent corrosion on the contacts. Try to clean up the connection and follow wires to be sure the harness is not corroded all the way up.

Here is an explanation from the man who engineered these plows, you may want to PM him and I bet he'll get in touch very quickly.

4 blinks - SC Right valve (orange wire)

If the plow is disconnected - the SA/SB/SC valves are all disconnected - so the controller is telling you that. If you connect the plow, you'll need to turn the controller off and back on to "reset" the diagnostics.

So the controller is functioning as designed, and won't do that if you turn it on with the plow connected.
