    First time hooking a Blizzard plow on my truck. Got everything wired correctly... But the controller doesnt have any power? Wondering if the plow has to be hooked up before the controller will turn on? Checked Fuses Got it wired directly to battery, and the Controller "hot" is wired to a Fuse. Also tried running that wire directly to battery.. still doesnt turn on? missing something?

    You're probably right if it's a PH2 with the mutiplex wiring. However if it's a PH1, the controller will work and click the solenoid regardless of whether or not the plow is hooked up.

    Is it a PH1 or PH2? PH1 = the lights stay on the truck, PH2 = the lights are connected to the plow and come off the truck with the plow.

    if its a 7600 then its a ph2 and the other 2 guys that responded are probably correct when they say that the plow has to be connected to have a full "circut" for the controller to have any power
