    looking to see how to test my touchpad to see if its fried it does everything but go left. i have checked everything to make sure there are good connections as wells grounds are all good. i am thinking it is the pad controller. when i push the button to go left the motor makes no noise what so ever. so is there a way for me to test the pad other then putting it on another unit cause nobody i know around me has one and which wire in the harness is for the plow to angle left. thanks have a great day

    For the plow to angle left only the White wire in the harness would receive a siginal from the controller , if the controller functions the plow up and right I would put a bet on the left function of the controller going south on you.

    Left function = +12v on white wire only
    RIght Function = +12v on white and green wires
    Up function = +12v on white and red wires
    Drop function = +12v on the Black wire
    Orange wire = Ground for the touchpad
    Blue = +12v switched power in .

    Where in NY are you? .

    Check the connection on the truck side of the harness, where the coil wire plugs in. I just replaced one of the connectors on my truck tonight.

    saratoga springs 30 mins north of albany, and thats what i was figuring with the touch pad that the left angle button is bad but this morning when i went to get coffee came home and drop the plow it angled left on is own and the plow motor kept running until i disconnected the pwer cables, i waited a min plugged them back in and then angled right to straighten it out wich it did, idk this is the last year i own a meyers its to much headache in my point lol
