    hello everyone i have a meyer snow plow its like 3 yrs old. has a the touch pad to control the plow. heres my problem . the plow goes up and down fine never have a problem. but when i plow and and angle the plow left the touch pad displays a red short circut light. than when i reset the pad by turning it off and on and trying hitting the right angle but the plays still angles left than short circuts and red light comes on. now i have to get out of the truck and shake the harness (where plow connects to truck) than its works for a little while.. someone told me it could be the moduales under the hood. but idk how to test them. anyhelp would be great

    you have a bad connection where you are shaking the wires. the red light means overload. check the green wire connection. is it good? if so does the coil the green wire goes to magnetize? have someone run it right and see if a wrench will stick to the coil while running.
