    i have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 with a 2012 mm2 plow. the wiring was fine all this past winter. this year, upon bringing the plow out the plow controller goes off by itself after being turned on. i narrowed it down to somewhere in the wiring, because if i wiggle the wires near the controller, and light harness it will act up.

    are there any common problems with the harnesses on the 3 port module?

    anyone had this issue before?

    Is the wiring brand new or used?

    Usually the routing of the wiring is the main issue. Look for chaffing on the wires

    So ck the routing of the wiring. Make sure its not rubbing on anything sharp

    i will check into it in a couple days. working early am, and getting out while its dark, without a garage, is no fun!

    however, i think it may be a corrosion, or connection issue. if i grab the bundle of wires near the drivers headlight, and wiggle it up and down it will come back on.
