    i have a newer curtis sno pro 3000 and it will not remain or go into float .

    12v at controller
    12v at truck to plow connector
    12v at float solenoid connector
    removed coil and manually energized it and stuck a bolt through it and it works
    pulled valve out and blew it out and then tried to push in the plunger and it moves but maybe only an 1/8 inch just enough to almost uncover the first hole .

    any ideas ? :gunsfiring: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> sno pro 3000

    now i hooked my plow up and with truck running the plow will raise but as soon as you release lever it falls back down . but if the truck is not running with key on it will go up but only go down manually and not float

    The plow gets it power from the battery will have to see were the black wire with the fuse in the cab is hooked.
