    Did a search and only found old results. It's a Western joystick type, not cable, and it always twiches right before it goes any other direction. Plugged in buddies hand held with same plug and works perfect so pretty sure its the controller? Thanks in advance for any and all input.

    Take it apart, very carfully clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. If that doesn't work. Just get a new one.

    Try the Ebay repair service. The guy is out of NY and repaired a Western V plow controller for us last year. Very easy to deal with, and the cost was less than $100.
