    Me and my buddy sat for hours in the snow tonight trying to get my plow hooked up. I had everything plugged in and the controller wont light up. no blown fuses anywhere. If you hold the smart hitch button on the plow, the controller with light up, but nothing moves.

    Any help out there? Thanks alot guys.

    1) Check the black wire right at the controller connector plug for 12V with a test light with the ignition key on.

    2) Make sure none of the controller connector pins (especially the black, brown, orange, and white ones) are pushed out of the plastic connector housing.

    3) Make sure the brown wire at the motor solenoid has good ground.
