    Ok heres the deal I installed this set up last night and this is the third of this type I have done. The first two went no problem. I use a relay to send my 12 switched power to the controller harness. This is working i have 12v at the red wire going into the controller harness but where this harness goes to the plug where the controller connects there is no power her at all. All the connections everywhere else are good so far as I know. This is a 3 port isolation module. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as im at a loss right now. The only thing i can come up with is that the harness is bad some how?

    you need to have the plow on in order to get power at the controller I believe. Don't know if you did that.

    Haha No I did not do that I had no idea you needed to have the plow hooked up to the truck side. But thank you because that was the problem im just glad I didnt screw anything up...
    Thanks again.

    U might have a problem at the plug. There might be a broken or defected wire. If you have power at the plug(were the controller plug into the harness), then you plug the controller into the harness, your problem might be in the connector. Check to see if metal tip is broken, or the wire might be broken off the tip.. And yes the plow should be hook up
