    Recently purchased a 2001 chevy 2500HD that has a MVP 8.5 Plow and Western Tailgate spreader. When operating the salter before purchase I could get the belt and spinner to work, now as soon as I get it home it won't. Hooked up battery charger to leads on the salter side of controls, and everything works fine, so i fiqure the truck to salter control must be the problem. Cleaned all connections and no go. When I turn controller on both the power and off buttons come on with red button flashing....... Anyone have any suggestions????

    Did you check the 30 amp in line fuse near the battery?
