    I am getting ready to go look at friends truck to help him. He has an 06 chevy 4 port iso system and he wired it up and has no power at the controller and it gets a buzzing noise at all times throught the solenoid. Plow doesn't work sounds like a wire crossed or not grounded correctly somewhere and it is backfeeding. Any suggestions
    Thanks

    Have you check the wires on the "solenoid" to make sure they are all clean and tight?
    diagram (if these are the color of your wires)

    have you check the fuses?

    Check the grounds??

    Is it a "4 port 2 plug" or "4 port 3 plug"??

    what kind of ultra plow??

    was the controller hook to a "accessory" pole in the fuse box with a 6amp fuse holder?

    Try to give as much info you can

    sounds like u have a wrong wire on one of the small poles on the solenoid, if u have a striaght blade u should be using one wire i forget the color and u should have one that is not used

    Check the following

    A) check the red wire (has a 6amp fuse in line) to the controller. This wire must be attach to a "accessory" pole in the fuse box. Check to make sure you have power, and check the fuse to see if it is blown

    Assuming you have a 4 port 3 plug there are brown/green, brown/red, and red/green

    A) check the brown/green and brown/red to make sure the connection on the relay "small terminals" are clean, tight, and not broken.

    B) red/green belongs on the "big terminal" battery, and has a 15 amp P/T fuse, and a 10 amp control fuse..Check those fuses to see if the are blown

    C) BLACK/ORANGE wire must be grounded. NO ONE REALLY CHECK THIS WIRE. Check the wire to make sure the end is not broken. Make sure it is clean and grounded.

    Assuming you have a 4 port 2 plug the vehicle battery cable has 4 wires. They are white, tan, black, and red.
    A) red wire goes to the controller and also goes to a 4 connector and onto port #1. There is a 7.5 control amp fuse. Check that fuse. Also there is a BLACK/ORANGE wire that has a connector that goes into the vehicle harness plug (grill plug). MAKE SURE THAT WIRE IS CLEAN and the connection is good.

    Also check the wires that went through the fire to make sure they are not chaff or bare wire is showing
