    Hey guys, quick question, I'm using a Western Pro Plus Contractor Grade, and the controller lost power on me after I shut off the truck and restarted. Any suggestions?

    Have you checked the fuses?

    Checked fuses and it has three plug wiring, I believe.

    Did you check the plow fuses or the fuse for where you connected your red 12v+ ACC connection?

    If you are good on all fuses, check your grounds next. Could be a loose ground on the plow wiring. this is a common point of all electrical gremlins

    So I called the dealer, and I'm going over there tomorrow, but somehow the plow started working again, what do you think? He went through the whole troubleshooting list, we checked all fuses, the battery and all, and then it started working after an hour of leaving it alone, i just don't want it to happen again.

    When it doesn't work, do you have power to the controller? What make, model, year truck?

    Had a similar problem, one of the terminals was loose on the solenoid. Double check those

    Ditto Dstosh. It could easily be one of the terminals on the solenoid being loose.

    I just had this problem. Cleaned the connectors and then added dielectric grease and has been working great.
