    Just went to hook up the spreader and nothing. Checked the fuses at fuse box and under hood , everything seems to be fine. Red wire on back of controller has juice, but no juice at spreader wire on rear bumper. Could the controller be bad. Green light on controller doesnt come on. How can i check if controller is bad?

    I had the same problem and it was the controller went bad. They have since re-designed the controller.
