    Western unimount on a 1998 Dodge. I hooked everything up today for the first time this season and I have no power to the controller (light not on) and the plow lights aren't working either. I checked the fuses and they have continuity. What else should I check? They are forecasting a lot of snow for tomorrow here so I need to get up and running.

    What kind of wiring did you install. Is it 2 or 3 plugs? Did you buy the wiring used or did you get it from the dealer? If used, what kind of truck did it come off from?

    check the wire that goes into the fuse box to see if there is voltage before the fuse? Check to make sure the harness to the plow has clean contacts?

    Just checking the basics.
