    Im sure someone on here will have the answer to this. I have a 8-2 VXT and it started acting up on me last night. Plow would not raise. I got out and checked my plugs and all seemed good. Then I put it in float like you were going to take the plow off...went out and bumped the tower switch and then it started working....for about 2 min. Now it does this about every other time I set the plow down..as soon as you go and bump the tower switch a couple of times and get back in it works. ? B&B? im sure you know...

    Pull your cover off, check the switch itself,the wires from it to the proper relay/solenoid etc. There should be a wiring diagram on the pump/housing sounds like the switch is bad. Also, check the 13th pin on your plowside connector-its the one all by itself. I had similiar issues and that pin gets partially broken etc.
