    Hi guys,

    I bought a few new plows for this season and I am having trouble with my first install. I am trying to install a 8ft western pro plus on my 2007 gmc 2500hd wt (new body). I have everything installed and wired up but I cant get my controller to turn on. I have the 3 port module so the wiring harnessi s all plug and play except for tapping into the turn/parking lights.

    I tried unplugging and replugging everything and cant figure it out. I thought it was the red accessory wire but i have tried wiring that to a few different things and i got nothing. This has been very frustrating.

    Can anyone help me figure this out?

    I'm going to try a voltage tester tomorrow.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    As I remember there is a separate power wire just for the hand held that is key on power.

    You have the pwr ign hot wire. But you have to have the plow hooked up for the clicker to turn on fyi. The 3 plugs plugged in

    I have the plow all hooked up and the separate power wire for the controller is wired up but still nothing on the controller. I have the 2 plug system.

    Got it! Figured out the plow side module was bad. I swapped it out with the other new plows. Go to go. Just have to wait for a replacement. Thanks for the help.
