    I have an older fisher ez-v that has been great until recently. While I'm plowing the plow will raise automatically (with out touching controller) in mid push with a full blade:angry:. it dose this when it wants to. My question, is it the controller or something on the plow itself etc..... I don't want to throw parts at it. all the wires etc visibly look OK. Any one else ever experience this. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thumbs Up

    We used to have an older EV and this thing also had a mind of its own. Ours, when in V position, the right side wing would start straightening itself out. We had a garage look at it and he rebuilt the valve body and it was good to go.

    Either the controller or a shorted wire

    you can do a bench test on your controller. Go to fisher website and it should tell you how. This was the problem with my western, and went to their website and downloaded their mechanics guide. im sure fisher has one to they are very close to westerns as far as wiring goes. This will eliminate your controller anyway.
