    when i bring the plow up It responds just fine but the pump coutinues to run for a few seconds..the stick in the cab works just fine ..and the drag seems to be coming from a box under the hood. any suggestions for a fix ..or the name of the component that might need to be replaced?? Thanks for your help...Dick

    Dick,
    Sounds like your solenoid....i might have butchered the name,but it sounds like it. IF it sounds like it still wants to go up after it is up,then thats the problem.
    Good luck.

    That would be the solenoid,sometimes they stick or just plain go bad,simple replacement,pick one up at your local dealer for around $15 and you should be good to go.
