    Sounds like you've checked all of the obvious things. I'd say run it into a snow bank, adjust the chains and take it to your dealer.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Fixed, could happen on any plow! Found the harness on truck side had rubbed on center radiator support and was grounding out one of control wires from cab controller.
    Simple problem that acted like bad module or bad control handle.
