    Hi all. Yesterday was using my plow to clean up my driveway and noticed it didn't want to lift the plow after a couple passes. Checked the fluid and it was a low so filled it. When I started back up it started tripping (keypad controll) when I tried to raise it or angle right, worked fine angling left. I am assuming it would be the control wiring but wanted to check here if anyone has a different theory or might have a better idea. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give, need to get it going cause a lot of snow is predicted tomorrow.
    By the way this is a plow I got with a truck this summer and had to replace the red (b) solenoid so no history of service. I do have the service manual.
    if you can guide me checking the wire I'd appreciate. I do have a digital multi-meter.

    Check all your grounds. Loosen them then re-tighten.
    Make sure ground wire for touch pad is grounded at the battery and no where else.

    Thanks Lon
    I will do the grounds today. Had to rig it yesterday with a come a long to blow a hole through the windrow from the highway plows so the Mrs. could get in from work. and a quick shot this am so she could get out. Not very efficent!!! Have a second plow truck I had been using but oil line for the oil cooler blew out and haven't had a chance to repair it. Not enough hours in the day as I had to plow for the local state barn. One of these days I'll have a place to do these things inside a warm, dry, and well organized shop.

    Again thanks for the help
