    Is there 12v at the power supply?
    does the 12v trigger have 12v when requested?
    do you have continuity to ground?

    Check plow connections if corroded and attached right, even check battery connections, may be corroded or just loose (happened to me couple times). Also, do you have power to hand controller, if so when you move it do you hear clicking under the hood of truck. If not maybe solenoid is bad, (this is in engine compartment usually near battery) these go bad sometimes not allowing power to go to electric motor for movement when you try to move plow. If hand controller does not light up check fuse and wires to it.
