    Put new receiver and solenoid , still no controller seeing the signal or sending any,doesn't light up at all. Checked the pressure switch , has closed contacts. checked wires, seams they are ok too,the only thing is the controller. I have two so I would not think both are NG. Looking for someone in my aera that has one I could try. Could there be a code for the older ones to reprogram.

    I also learned that if the connections for the controller are not clean and making good contact, they wont allow for the 5V to go through. I had to change out the connection at the truck/plow and used a flat 4 trailer wire for a long time, only to have problems with my plow powering up last year. I talked to Basher and he lead me in the right direction. I installed a new connector this year and it has fired up first try every time.

    Found out that there is a code for the older handhelds .(on/up/dn/dp/on).Dealer forgot or didn't know, Had to call sno way tech and he helped me out. It's an older 22 series.Wolf on controller(gray).I may have had a good receiver ,Now I have a spare. Thanks for all the help. Now I can fab the mount for the wrangler, peice of cake there.Just something to pass along for someone with the same problem.
