    Could be several things,

    Controller umplugged,
    Keyed hot wire unplugged,
    Bad solenoid,
    Bad motor,
    Bad connection at grill,
    And yes, bad fuse to the controller.

    Does it make sounds? Does it click? Gota describe the problem a bit more. Is joystick light up or Fishstick? Did it die in you drive way?

    i can hear the solenoid click when we move the control. i got this truck new with the plow in 2000 and this is the 1st problem with the plow . is the fuse in the isolation module ? also had a new battery put in the truck last week . plowed for three hours today and then this problem . thanks

    first thing i would do is check the two fuses located on the harness near the iso/mod and clean all the grounds. If still no go take a set of jumper cables and jump from the pos terminal on the battery to the pos post on the motor and see if it runs (just give a quick tap with the cable) if it runs then you more than likely have a bad solenoid - if no run then quite possibly a bad motor. These are just a couple of quick ways to trouble shoot your plow, the fisher website has a much more comprehensive troubleshooting section that i would recomend you take a look at. Good luck, Roy

    If you have 2 grill connectors its the onw with 9 pins, if you have 3 connectors its the one with 3 pins in it. Make sure you check where the controller plugs in also.

    Does not want to angle only one way, both directions, fine when plow lowered but problems while raised?
