    How common is it for a fish stick to go bad?One of our trucks is only 4 years old with a brand new setup

    We took the plow from the 2010 truck and hooked to our 2006 truck and worked fine.We then swapped fish sticks and it worked fine on the 2010.

    Is it a fleet flex set up? Maybe you have the security code on it?

    My Fisher dealer told me $215 for a new board. At that price I'd just buy a brand new controller

    the Board can be fixed by an electronics person.

    These guys replaced all my bulbs in my instrument cluster cuz they are sodered.When you buy it they send you an email with a packing slip.Bring that to where you are shipping it and they will tape it to the box and send it on its way.Only took a few days before I got it back
