Down Pressure is backwards- Problem

    Hey guys!

    Was out plowing today and the plow worked perfect all day. Got to my last house and turned on the down pressure switch and the plow came up. Once I turned DP off the plow went back down.

    Any ideas? I was able to finish the house without using DP and the plow is fully functional just backwards when the DP switch is flicked.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Wire off the PP switch, bad PP switch. or a hung DP valve.
    OR maybe the switch "switched" it'self

    Also what does PP mean? And by "switched itself" do you mean the switch on the cover?

    Wow cant even believe it was THAT simple to fix.

    Pulled the cover off the pump and TADA. The green wire that goes to the switch on the cover had popped off probably because the last drive was a little rough. Plugged it back on and its good to go. :)

    Thanks for the lead Bash.
