    have you checked your starter or battery yet? Either one can be bad.

    Check the connector from the control box to the harness that runs back to the salter. This has been a problem of mine before.

    check your 6 pin connection expecially if the connection is back by the salt spreader. usually a wire gets corroded.

    Also check for power and for the signal (of the switch in the truck) at the starter solenoid mounted by the sanders motor. This will let you know were to go next. power and no signal head towards the truck side. power and signal- check the output. New doesn't mean good. If you have an output check for power at starter. Good luck.
