    Has anyone ever had a problem with a hiniker straight plow not responding when you try to raise the blade or angle? Down is no problem. Plow eventually responds are about 30 seconds. Can it be just a bad controller?

    I had a similar problem yesterday and I found the cables were loose at the
    battery.

    It could also be a loose connection at the motor solenoid or a bad solenoid. The down function does not activate the solenoid.

    Thanks for all your help on this, just a bad controller, replaced and working fine now.
