    Was spreading salt tuesday morning got most of the lots done and the auger stop running but the control box said that the auger was working and it was not . The spinner ,vibator work but the auger does not so i thought that i burnt up the electric motor so i bought a new one hooked it up and it still didn't work ,found a flated ground wire that fed into the ground side of the auger motor fixed that and still nothing didn't know if maybe you guys had a idea or not thanks. oh forgot this is a vee-pro 8000

    my old one was acting up like this too and was in the plug where the spreader plugs into the truck. I used the repair pigtail, that they do not reccommend you use but it worked fine.In fact the guy I sold it to is still using it this way. I think they just want you to spend moremoney and buy the whole harness. That may just be your problem.

    had this problem before. Called snow ex technician. He had me put new dielectic grease on the connectors, worked like a charm. Make sure the connectors arent corroded either. Hope this helps
