    Last storms it worked fine, I took it off and stored it. We just got another 2'' so I went out and hooked it back up to turn on before loading salt and I get a P code on the spinner. I have the black digital control boxes.

    I swapped out the controller and that didn't do anything, I also switched three different spinners and same thing P code. The P means spinner disconnected.

    Now that the weather is warmer I am going to get a test light and check to see if I have power leaving the controller, and then back at the connection to the spinner. Have anything else I can do to check? What's the deal?

    P doesn't mean bad spinner, it means missing connection. Could be dirty connections, bad connection, unplugged wires, broken wires.

    feed power to motor. see if it works. if so check all connections . Look inside connection and make sure they are all were they are suppose to be. Check all wire running to spinner. anything that might have gotten crimped , burned ,cut, Anythings possible.

    Did you find your problem?

    I'm having the same problem. I've replaced a lot of stuff and still have no power at the spinner.

    I've had this issue before.

    Power coming out of the control box but not at the plug on the back of the truck. Turns out wiring was corroded inside of the rubber coating about 2ft before the plug not letting power run through. Cut the section off and extended it back to normal and all was well.

    I'm willing to bet you have an issue in the internals of the wiring on the truck from the control box back.

    I thought that too and I installed a brand new power and control harness.

    Pull cover off spinner motor, there are spade connections inside the cover.

    Everything works great again.

    It turns out the salter had more then one issue. First problem was a bad controller. That got replaced with a Karrie controller. Next was a bad test light. (my fault for not testing the test light first. I usually do, just didn't this time) Next was a locked up spinner motor/gearbox.

    The motor/gearbox was replaced with a brand new one and worked just fine......until I needed to use it at 3am two Sundays ago. This one was locked up also. It worked perfect after I installed it, but when it came time to use it it wouldn't spin. I couldn't turn the spinner shaft with a 2 foot channel lock. I got the "old" motor freed up and put that back on.

    I took the new locked up motor back to my dealer. I told them the story how it was locked up and at 3am I had to put the old one back on. The dealer grabs the shaft and it spun just fine.....story of my life. I had the motor sitting on the floor of the truck and the heat was blowing on it. That must of thawed it. I still asked for a new motor as I didn't trust this one anymore. The dealer then says "how can I warranty something that works?" After a lot of explaining and showing him the teeth marks on the shaft from the big Channel lock and repeating my story he got the manager so I could explain all this for the 3rd time. In the end the manager gave in and gave me a replacement motor/gearbox, even tho the counter guy kept saying "why it seems to spin just fine"

    I'm still running the old motor as it is working fine for now. I'll keep the new one for a back up.

    My motor doesn't have these connectors. The power cable it wired deep inside the motor case. The replacement motor came with a new power cable.
