meyer plow just stopped working

i was plowing over the weekend and i was clearing a driveway. i lowered the blade and started to work. i went to back out of the driveway and raise the blade and it wouldnt come up or angle in either direction. i cant seem to figure out why it isnt working. i checked the controls and the lights come on when plugged in so im thinking its something other then the controller being burnt out. i was wandering if anyone had any ideas on what else i could check out before i start spending a fortune to have it fixed. thanks for your help.

Does the controller light up I've had wires kink up and stop working till I straighten. I have also had problems with the controller wire that is connected to the fuse box for keyed on off come loose and make a bad connection. Can you jump the solenoid under the hood.

Go to the Meyer site and find the troubleshooting charts. I reccomend downloading the manual and printing a copy to keep with you when you plow, along with a test light and some electrical repair tools.

Most likely your pump motor isnt running, usually a bad connection at the battery, solenoid, or motor.
