    Tried to hook up to the plow today and controller is always lit up (on/off on the controller doesn't change anything) and the power hook up will not work. when connected none of the buttons make the plow do anything!

    Storm tonight so HELP asap would be great.

    ps its a 1 year old DXT plow.

    So the controller has pwr as it is lit up. When the key is off does it stay lit up or does it turn off?

    If it turns off with the key I would unplug it his alp the buttons and reconnect. If that doesn't happen I would take it apart and see if something seems stuck.

    If the controller stays on with the key off then something is going on with the wiring.

    Crisis averted! Turns out the ground cable on the main power to the plow was disconnected. It was still in the rubber portion of the connector but no longer actually making connection.
