    Basically never had any issues, take it off about 4 times this season. Plow controls all work up down and both angles.

    Checked for broken wire, couldnt find it.

    Jumped power from pink/ black wire to the battery, and IT WORKS.

    I dont think its the switch or it wouldnt work at all.

    *im kind of being stubborn and probably already know the answer but could it be anything else besides a broken wire, i really dont wanna search for a broken wire especially since blizzard has most wires in its original wiring loom.

    When you activate the switch in the cab on the control for power hitch operation the controller sends power down the pink/ black wire to the switch. The single pin on the bottom row of the power plug is the pink / black wire. If it's broken / corroded / missing you won't get power to the plow. First thing is to check that. If it's good then go up to the controller plug and check for power at the pink/black wire there. If you have power there then it's a broken wire in the harness usually by the plug. IF no power there then the switch in the controller is probably going bad. They are readily available. SOMETIMES you can clean them.
