    I hooked up my spreader and made all the conections, was working when we ended last year. On power up it reads check motor. check continuity and all grounds and power are correct.. it will flash 12.63 on a meter for a spit second on turn on then 0. I think it may be tripping the reset any ideas This is just the standard buyers control on/off blast and dial. Thanks Patrick

    I know this is a stupid question, but does the motor turn by hand? It sounds like you either have a short on something or your motor is gone and it is drawing a ton of amps.
