    Just hooked up my fisher v on a 1998 Chevy truck. Plow works up and down and left wing moves out. When I try to bring the right wing out the left comes in. Also, the plow will not go into the scoop position. Controller is good. checked it on another truck. How do you change the filter ?

    What function does it do when you press the scoop function?

    Filter is in the reservoir. Remove the four mounting screws attaching the reservoir and pull it down...after draining the fluid of course. :D

    rblake, my plow did the same thing. I found a couple of the solenoids were stuck. Pulled them out and lightly tapped the ends to free them. Plow has worked great since then.

    which style Vee? if it's an EZ-V your S2 valve may be stuck open. The S-2 is the one with the solid blue wire on it.

    If it doesn't attempt to raise when you press the scoop function you've got more than a single valve problem''or other problems so be sure to pull and check them all...

    Be sure to check the grill connectors as well...they cause far more problems than valves do..

    I pulled the tank off and one of the pickup filters had come off so I replaced and cleaned the tank. Pulled all of the solenoids, didnt seem stuck open, so cleaned and replaced. Went for the bottom solenoid that has a red wire and blue wire. The nut on the post was very corroded. Had to go buy new one. Try it out in the morning. thanks

    check i think the five pin connector.. i had kinda the same problem a while ago, cant remember what function was not working but the guy must have forced the connectors together and the male pin bent to the side.. also a little electric grease goes a long way..

    Good call B&B I forgot that part. I will say that the grill connectors on the module wiring does not have nearly the issues the hollow pin setups did.

    Couldn't agree more there Brian. The solid pins definitely help with reliability. Of course they still need care an maintenance in order to keep them corrosion free...as with any plow.

    Installed the new solenid & valve, added fluid - works perfect. Thanks for the help.
