    Testing my E-60 tonight and when I turned my controller on it would go into lockout (red light) and all the buttons would light up and flash. I had a spare controller and everything works as it should. Can these controllers be repaired and what can cause them to go bad? It is the Meyers original controller with the raised buttons. Thanks for any help.

    Mine lasted 18 years before it shorted out (I think due to the ground coming loose). I switched to a slick stick and could not be happier at less $$$. My truck is a 95 and is off road only for firewood, plowing and yard work.
