    hey guys new to the site. I have a brand new western hts plow on a 97 gmc . blades all set up, mount and all on the truck. today I tried to-do the electrical hooked everything up but the turn signal wires because I did not splice them yet. I went to plug in everything and I got nothing. I wired the lights with the harness on the truck and they work just nothing on the plow will work, I'm very frustrated and this is my first time installing a plow. its a 2 plug, 3 port module the only thing I may have done wrong is hooked this red acc cord up in the cab next to the controller? any suggestions to where I can start looking I have been reading the manual all day and cant figure out where I went wrong, help would be appreciated, also will the power come on the controller if the plow is not hooked up? thanks

    it says something about running the cord threw the fire wall one for the controller 4 pin, and the other one is a little red cable. It says I should have 12 volts when the trucks running for the accessory cable but what does that mean exactly ?

    Are you getting signal to the coils when you use the up or dwn function?

    i checked everything just cant get the plow to go up or down. I checked all connections, and the fluid, it says fluid should be 2 inches from top of the breather cap. and it is. when I hit the up button the silienode clicks but no movement, maybe there is air in the lines since its brand new ? no idea going to mess with it today

    The fluid has nothing to do with your problem. You need to ck pwr coming out of solenoid. And your coils for the approite function.
