    Hey guys, hooked up to the plow today and plugged it in. Got plow lights and power to control pad (it lights up), but nothing for hydraulics (up/down/left/right). Checked battery connections and cleaned them, same thing on pump side. When I hit one of the motion buttons (up/down...) the lighted switch to turn on the plow lights flickers. Fuse?? Any ideas??

    I don't have any experience with the touch pad controllers but...
    I would think since the controller lights up it's got power. When you hit raise or l/r angle are you getting 12v to the small terminal on the under hood solenoid? If you are, are you getting 12V on the output side of the solenoid going to the pump?

    Not sure what pump/controller you have but you should be able to find a service manual here that has a diag section... http://www.meyerproducts.com/service/partsServiceList.asp?catID=1

    i don't know anything about touchpad controllers or meyer pumps but i know my old cable western pump and our mm2 fisher solenoids can be jumped to see if they are good. perhaps you can try jumping yours? if it works by jumping there's a problem with the controller it's self (at least in the western and fisher cases) good luck with it :)
