Can't get remote/plow powered up

    I just bought a 2002-2003 Sno Way MT series plow from a friend. He sold me a Predator (direct wired) remote with it. He can't remember the sequence used to start it. It has 3 lower buttons. The left is unmarked, the middle is labeled "DP" and the right is the on/off. It also has the control buttons (up/down/left & right) above those. can anyone tell me what sequence I use to start the plow? I called a dealer and they said hold the DP and on/off down for 5 seconds but it didn't work. My friend said something about On/Up but wasn't sure. Any help would be appreciated, or is you know a website with instructions maybe. Thanks in advance.

    A friend of mine has an older Mt and if I remember correctly,
    Starting with the down direction button press down, left, up right then the on button for 5 seconds. I hope this helps.
    On the new 04 and newer models its DP and ON together for 5 seconds.

    Pushing the DP and ON at the same time should make the green light in the ON button glow.

    It would be to your advantage to contact Sno-Way (link up top, contact us, phone #), have your Serial # ready, they will e-mail you and and ALL the manuals that originally came with that plow.Installation, service, parts, etc.) It might save you a lot of aggravation down the road.
    If that fails to help you, ask for teck support, they are GREAT!

    Powering Up Sno-Way Handheld Control


    The proper sequence for powering up the control is:

    1. Press "On"
    2. Press "UP"
    3. Press "Down"
    4. Press "DP"
    5. Press "On"

    This should solve your problem.

    If you need manuals for your plow, let me know. I can e-mail them or slow mail them to you. All that I need from you is the serial number of your plow (e.g., MTDXXXXXX or MTGXXXXXX).
