    I had my truck in the dealer for a tie rod and drag link. They broke while plowing so AAA towed to the dealer with the plow on. This morning I picked it up and now my v plow won't work. The left button raises and the right button lowers it. No left right, scoop or wings. The dealer said he doesn't know what happened but that's not fixing it. Any idea what could cause this. I've tried both of my controllers and that's not it.
    Thanks

    Did the wiring get pinched, did you throw the controller when the truck broke?

    If you know someone with a controller you could try start there. At least you can eliminate that then.

    Did they take the plow off. And plug the connectors back in wrong?

    I just took the cover off the plow motor where the plow module is located and there is a big chunk of plastic missing from the top of it as though it was smashed by something.

    Good luck getting them to admit that.

    If module is damaged you will need to replace it.

    Sounds about right, just guessing.

    I have one if you need it, but it would require a few days shipping
