    I have a new wide out I bought last February. Didn't use it only a couple of times and noticed the issue last year but thought I might have been doing it by accident not being used to the extra buttons on the controller since it differs from the controller for the pro plus. I have checked the connections and seem to be fine. Unplugged then plugged the controller back in but it has not helped. Press the on button again and all is fine for awhile. Any ideas?

    How long is it on before it turns off?
    Is the backlight still on when its off?

    It varies for time could plow for half an hour with no problem or it might go off the next time you go to pick up or put the plow down. Yes I think the back light stays on.

    Thinking it will shut off in 15-20 mins if not used Thinking thats what my MPV does

    IF you knowit does that. Then look at where the little wire that runs to the fuse box make sure its lock in well and not loose. I had one come loss and every bad bump the controller would turn off.

    I need to post faster
