    If you have the controller you can build your own control harness with a couple connectors and some wire of a few various colors.

    I can describe how to wire it rather easily. Which style of controller are you using, joystick or handheld? And if it's a joystick does it have a white plastic connector on it?

    Simply follow the wire colors on the controller itself to build your own control harness.

    White - to 12V ignition source. Be sure to include a 6 AMP inline fuse on this circuit.
    Brown - to a good ground. Preferably directly to the negative battery terminal
    Black - to small terminal on under hood solenoid. This is your activation wire that triggers said solenoid.
    Red - to S1 coil on pump
    Green - to S2 coil on pump
    Blue - to S3 coil on pump

    Then simply add a small ground to the other small terminal on the under hood solenoid, connect your power cables to it and you're all set. Just be sure to double and triple check your work because if connected incorrectly you can smoke the controller.

    Simple enough.

    I knew it was here but couldn't find it for the life of me thanks.




    If you have no plow side wiring at all you will need to make up a ground jumper and tie it to your ground cable connection on the motor to ground all the coils. And if you don't know the identification of the coils/valves when you're ready to connect your new control harness to them here you go....

    Depends on which way you're orientating it, so a pic is easier than a description....
