    ? Hand-Held Control ? Should it lite up when the plow is unhooked? Completing the install and notice the hand held control does not lite up when the plow is unhooked from the truck? Is this normal? Maybe I have something hooked up wrong? Any info is appreciated. Thanks

    Man I dont even remember!

    I cant see the reason for it being lit up, then again I dont leave it connected if the plow is not- whats the point? so some di*ckhead thief can grab it?

    might be the way it is wired. I wouldn't worry about it, unless it doesn't work with the plow

    My Fisher doesn't light up unless the plow wiring is hooked up on the front.

    Ill check in the morning for ya but I think This has to do with what type of system you are using....I forgot to look..... I dont think the Unimount 2 wire nine pin systems will light the controler because the ciurcut is open when unplugged but the new three wires might because I think!!! the curcuit is closed with the new headlamp loop.

    Mine does not light till the plow is hooked up. All it is , is the power supply that you have going to it. The circuit is not completed till the plow is attached. Not a big deal, as you wont need it till the plow is on.
