    I have a snow way snow plow MT series it is about 7 years old, one day it just quite working took it to the dealer and diag is a new module and controller for a wopping 700.00 dollars my dad uses the plow for his drive the dealler said I could try and find a used module and use that for the mean time. Unless some has a way to bypass this retarted module. Thre reason it is so expensive is that my module is the old style and new one requires a new moduale and remote.

    I know nothing about that brand of plow but what exactly is in the module? Is it just relays? You could always fab one up with relays or, If so there is a relay pack you can buy at surplus center (www.surpluscenter.com) for 159 bucks.

    it looks like a rectangle module about the size a 5x7 picture and it is a circuit board inside but i did just find someone with the old style module but it is still expensive. All i got to say to my dad is if it aint red it aint right

    So the plow worked fine for seven years and then a part broke and your pissed:dizzy: that's pretty good relibility I think.:nod: You obviously have never bought much in the way of Snowplow parts ,check the cost of others controlers, isolation modules, etc.
