Hand Held Controller Problems

I got a call early today from one of our drivers. Every time or every other time he raised or turned or lowered the plow it would turn the controller off. I had him go back to the shop and unhook the plow control wire from the truck, blow any crap out and apply dielectric grease to it. (figuring possible water in it). He said it helped and now it only turns off every three or four times he hits a function. I did a search on here and someone had a different problem but everyone said most problems are ground issues. Do you guys think this is were i should start! thanks

You'll probably find you need to replace the keypad and circuit board in the controller. Not an uncommon occurance. Not a cheap fix either, though...
