Hiniker 9850 power unit

    Hello, I'm operating a Hiniker 9850 V plow with S203T 5051 power unit. The power unit pump now runs continuously (never stops unless I pull 2 conductor power cable), all functions of the plow Up/down/V/Sc work as per normal however the damn pump wont shut off, causing extreme voltage drop. Does this sound like a solenoid, a relief valve, or possibly a blown O ring somewhere? The fluid is good, and a cursary check of the wires didn't reveal any loose connectors or worn/exposed wires. Any ideas, or possible starting points before I start ripping parts off? Thanks

    I can't speak specifically for Hiniker plows but when my Western MVP ran continuously it was due to a faulty solenoid. I stuck a new one on and haven't had any trouble since.

    Well that was helpful as its not a western...

    I actually have a Hiniker

    Another thing you could take a look at is the solenoid under the hood.

    The solenoid sounds like it's the culprit

    My plow did the same thing just replace the solenoid under the hood and you will be good.

    Most likely it is the solenoid. You could take the control wires off the solenoid and then plug it back in. If the pump still runs the solenoid is bad. If it does not run you have a control problem.
