    Wish I could help ya but have no idea with everything on these plows being computerized, maybe try disconnecting from battery and try that...maybe a glitch but sounds like a controller issue.

    Check fuses out on the pump under the covers. Two fuses under front cover and two under rear cover.

    Then you are down to control or damaged module. Should also test coils.

    Bad connection should make control light flash.

    I hooked the plow up to another truck and it still persist, so I have at least narrowed it down to the plow side. Im on my way to get a power/control side harness now......fingers crossed

    If everything except left and up drop the plow, would that narrow down which valve is junk?? Because im beginning ti think its a valve not the harness.

    Update: it was a broken male terminal on one of the magnets that control one of the valves. Im a donkey for not checking them already
