    WHO CAN ANSWER THIS ? I have a 2003 fisher mm2 HD with a fish stick that jerks right when i try to go left sometimes, but will go right no problem. i tried jiggling plugs the other night when it was doing it but that did nothing. the 2 fisher places that serviced my plow haven't heard of this problem they say bring it in when its doing it but thats usually at 3:00 am. i know sooner or later it will finally get stuck angled right and i won't be able to what i have to do. can any body help me. thanks, kenny

    I studied the wiring and jump the pins at the connector for all functions as a test to eliminate the stick. I also ohmed all wires to make sure they were not bad. If you can replicate it with the stick and jump the pins and it works fine you know it is the stick. It is probably just the circut board and you can repalce just that

    no it only does it sometimes. you being from the cape must know rpm he says it is not the fish stick, i was going to buy one he said to save my money. i'll bring it to him next week for a possible wiring short.

    find someone with a different control and plug it in to your truck. joystick or handheld, both will work. shorted wire is possible, but i would try the free route first.
