    Need some help! Mounted up my 6 cu. ft. spreader. Worked fine at end of last season. Have power light on at controller. Have power to the 40 amp circuit breaker. Power to the relay, red & yellow wire. No power to white wire out of relay to back of vehicle connector.
    Bad relay? Or am I missing something. Should I direct wire the motor to check it and rule it out.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance. Melody.

    Yes, rule out the motor. For all they cost a relay change is a good idea

    I sent you an email. must be in your trash/junk folder. Check the motor first, throw 12 volts at it. Give it a little help if it doesn't spin, sometimes they need a little help first time ouit of the box if they sit too long.
