    ok so i know there are 100 threads on this problem but i cant seem to find them. I just got done hooking up my new mm2 straight blade. the headlights convert to the plow but i have no power to the controller to see if the plow works. The red wire is hooked into the fuse panel and the fuses are all good. Any Suggestions????? it is a 4 port ISO Module. Thanks

    The ground for the controller goes through the light light wires. I would check the ground under the hood.Also make sure you have the back and red wire on the battery side of the silinode

    Is this a brand new plow, or an older, "new" to you plow? Are there 3 or 2 connections at the grill?

    Good point, however by the wording of his first statement, I believe he was hooked up to it at the time of discovery.

    I'm having the same problem. I hook the plow up and have no power to the fishstick. I've checked the solenoid and the wire harness. But can't seem to find the problem. Any suggestions?

    Start your own thread with all your truck's & plow's info. Also include wither this is a new install, or if it's an existing setup.....
