Blizzard 760LT draw arm wont work????

    Ok, I took my plow off 2 weeks ago and when using the rocker switch on plow to lower draw arm, it kind of worked then stopped, play with it a little, got it to unhook...

    so I figured the big plug from plow to truck might not have been getting a great connection, put some electric grease on the plug and put it away until next time...

    went to hook up the other day, did my normal thing, drove into plow, installed my pins, hooked up harness, and I could not get the arm to hook up?

    I went into the cab, joystick picked it right up, arm went up and I went on my way plowing.

    Plow works great up, down, left, right all works as normal.

    Went to put plow away in garage cant get are to release from my truck...I have no clicking noise, pump is not trying to run, just nothing.

    Its not a problem for right now, but sooner or later it will have to come off.

    I am thinking its the rocker switch on the plow, just wondering if there is a way to test it? or anything else I should maybe look into.

    Thank you

    Well I finally found the problem today, if someone happens to run into the same problem.

    checked pink/black wire on the truck side of plug and had power, checked right after the plug on plow side still had power, so I ruled out a bad connection. checked the pink/black as it went to the toggle switch and had NO power, so I pealed of the wrap on the plow side and sure enuff the wire was broken in 2..
    Crimped the wires together and all is well again.

    The spot it had broke had no sigh of damage, it just decided to turn green and break.
