An eight-bar flash occurs when the controller has detected a loose wire connection or internal problem with the controller. Step one, ensure the batteries are disconnected and the brakes are locked in the up position before attempting service.
Step two, check for loose motor wires in the junction box. If there are any loose wires, reconnect the wires and turn on the unit to see if the fault has stopped. If the eight-bar is still present, there is a potential issue with the controller. For detailed information on replacing a controller, see our controller replacement video on our website.
