    Try wiggling the grill connector. Be careful as the plow can drop at anytime. If that doesn't work refer to the mechanics guide on the western website. Also check the cab control connector for broken wires.

    found the problem. what i did I put my old plow on a different truck same set up but it seems like the plug ha some slop in it. If we wiggle the plugs it works great. so putting back on the plow that was on the truck. thanks for all your advice
