Harness not working properly?

    I just installed the control harness on my 04 Dodge Ram, when I turn the controller on, the little red light comes on. When I activate a function, up/down/left/right, the red light goes out and nothing happens.

    I've installed several plows and dont remember this ever happening, but its been several years since I've messed with them. So what's going on here, all the fuses are good, but it doesnt seem to work. I checked all the connections, they are just how they are described in the installation manual.
    :confused:

    Two things that come to mind..

    Either the controller is defective (not at all uncommon if it's a hand held :nod:)

    Or, the control harness is searching for ground..do you have the small gage ground wire run from the small post on the under hood solenoid directly to the neg side of the battery? If it doesn't have one, add it.
