    Well I just bought a western 8'6" MVP Poly Plow for my 05 chevy 2500hd and after installing it I am having a problem with operation of it. When I push right the plow goes up, left it goes down but the pump runs, and all the other buttons do nothing. All the wiring is plug and play except a power for the controller, parking lights, and turn signals so there is nothing I could of wired wrong and I checked my hydraulic lines and they are all hooked up right. I am thinking it is a bad module, any help or advice would be appreciated!!!!! The dealer I bought it from can't look at it till tomorrow and I wanna get it figured out asap!

    be careful plugging the power/ground cable in, if you touch it backward it blows the fuses.
