E-60 Touch-pad problem...

    Just bought a E-60 pump and controls about a month ago. Upon installation found that it would raise and only angle left... Well with the useful info you fine folks have been handing out on this site I found that I had a bad C Coil and a possible bad A Coil... But upon coming onto a post from awhile back I checked the drop setting and found it bottomed out.. so after adjusting that 1 1/2 out the plow now drops... a bit too fast with a C-8.5 plow but I shall adjust that.. but my question is the touch pad.. when raising it works fine... but after you lower the plow it wont raise the motor runs but it dont raise.. I checked and power is staying on the A coil holding the valve open... If i shut the power off to the touchpad a few seconds it will raise again... but upon lowering it wont raise.. I'm thinking a bad touchpad.. I looked thru all the posts and havent found anything on this kind of problem.. Thanks in advance!!

    Sound's like you did some good research on your own here Brian.... Like you already suspected, and I'm just gonna confirm here, the TP is dying on you....as is should only supply power to the A coil when in float, and as soon as you press the raise button it should immediately kill the power to the A coil (which it obviously doesn't)...look's like you'll need to replace it..
