    Do you have another controller to test?If not I would first start by looking and checking and making sure all the connections are good and clean at the controller plug itself.Next check and make sure the fuse is good and in tight red wire that comes off the harness.You have 6 wires that come off the connector that the fishstik plugs into.Red/white wire that comes off has a 7.5amp fuse that runs to port 1 of isolation module,make sure that is good.Also want to make sure the black/orange and brown/red wire are connected to the motor relay under the hood.Make sure the white cord connector fully seated on the PCB (printed circuit board) you do this by:

    1. Disconnect the control in the cab
    and remove to a workbench.
    2. Place control on its left side and
    remove right side of handle, leaving
    the keypad/circuit board assembly
    in left half.
    3. Touch any grounded metal object
    to discharge possible static
    4. Remove keypad/circuit board
    assembly from housing by only
    touching the edges of the keypad/
    circuit board assembly.
    5. The keypad/circuit board
    assembly can be handled safely
    as long as contact with it is
