    My Snoway remote says 'relay fault'. What does this mean. Plow still works.
    However it intermittantly beeps and says 'no receiver' then nothing works. What's going on?? Then magically it all starts working again.

    take the plastic cover off your plow, theres a fuse on the back somewhere under the cover pull that ou for a minute and then put it back in see if that helps any

    I had found the fuse last night. I pulled it and put back in. Still same problem.
    I did find that when the 'no receiver' message came up, if I tapped the black receiver module, the problem went away for awhile.
    The unit is still under warranty, so I am going to contact Snoway today. I think the module is bad.

    Take it straight to the dealer if it's under warranty

    Help!!!! Sunday out of luck

    So i believe my solenoid burnt up last night, so i replaced it but now it displays relay fault. I read in the manual that it means that power is not sensed at the start switch coil.....what the Heck does that mean.
    I also believe that I have the solenoid grounded properly.
    My thoughts are the module went bad.....Help please

    Ground the 12 volt motor solenoid?? it is triggered by a ground. I assume you have a Pro control?
