    A red light blinked on my controller yesterday and I thought nothing of it. Today I can't get my straight blade plow to move because I can't get my controller to turn on. Is the circuit board on my controller fried. What did the red blinking light mean? It did not blink green to red, just red.

    Bad connection at the front? Check all the connections and throw some dialectic grease in there

    Mine does it too, but when it goes into "sleep" mode and doesn't move the plow. After 20-30min of not being used it goes to sleep and blinks red. All I had to do was turn the controller off then back on.

    It has been a long time since I had a straight blade, but Don't you have a wire that goes to the fuse box that is supposed to be on a "keyed" fuse? You may want to check that to make sure it didn't wiggle out or the fuse blown.

    There may be an issue with one of the connections you can't see. Are any of them green looking?
