    I have a Buyers TGS05 tailgate spreader and i'm using a grotech controller with it. Last year when we hooked it up we got it to work but its not optimal. Right now it turns on and off whether the igntion is on or not, and the speed control does not work, it is always full blast.

    There are 2 sets of 2 wires coming out of the controller. on the red/black pair is the lead from the battery on the red and the ground on the black. On the white/black pair is the power to the spreader on the white and nothing connected to the black. I understand that there is supposed to be a wire to the fuse block but i don't know where to put it. We tried it on the black wire on the white/black pair and it didnt make a difference.

    I know i sound like a hillbilly idiot, but any ideas would be greatly appreciated!:dizzy:

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe grotech was bought out by another company, maybe the company that owns snowex? I've done some serching with no luck on finding any wiring diagrams for the grotech stuff.
