    Basically i ve installed an LT760 (not a LT7600), on a 2010 FOrd F150 FX4. I basically hooked up everything correctly, its not the first time installing a blizzard plow.

    Basically i went to hook up today to make sure everything is working properly, and i hooked up but when i when to drop the hitch to drive my truck forward NADA no power, didnt hear hydraulics nothing.

    I then basically walked away before i got upset and i cant think properly when im upset. Im wondering if its a fuse maybe.

    Extra Info, not sure if it has any relevance but it has a light bar using a 3 port isolation module.

    Joystick powers on, has trackpad when its turned on green LEDs light up

    Bad ground coming from plow will leave you high and dry every single time. Check the ground to ensure it is clean and tight. Then do the same with the power. Next check all the pins in the harness where the vehicle harness meets the plow. Quite often the plow side harness will have pins missing in it, especially older ones that have not had dielectric grease on a regular basis. These pins tend to rot off due to corrosion. A missing pin = a new harness or a bypass made. Check the main power relay to ensure you have power in and out of it. If you do not have a meter, get one.

    Trackpad

    all grounds are to battery should be good, ill double check, i always use dielectric grease but i bought this plow used so who knows what previous owner did.

    main power relay ????? there is no relay, ccould this be the same problem as a previous plow i purchased owner forgot to give the relay cause they thought it was part of the vehicle.

    or were you talking about the solenoid ?
