    I think there is a wire from the controller that goes to a fused like.
    You can put it to the battery or a keyed source is better by using a build a fuse

    I tried it yesterday with the plow and it didnt work but i had the four wire power plug hooked up backwards and thought that might be it

    Controller power must be wired to a keyed source or you will kill the battery. The plow has to be hooked up for the controller to power on as well.
