    Hello,
    I just bought a plow for my truck that i have had for a while. The truck was setup for an EZ V plow.
    I bought the fish stick along with the adaptor for a straight blade. I am using an 8.5 ft minute mount 2 straight blade. I know the plow that i am using works as i saw it work on a different truck yesterday.I press i hear a click in the fish stick and it shuts off...
    Any thoughts on what this could be before i take my truck to a fisher dealer?
    :confused:
     
  2. I saw on one of these threads some gotten a fish stick they had to hook up wrong. The color code was not right. Had to gert the color code chart for both wiring system Fish stick wiring & plow wiring. left to left may have a different color. right angle to right angle may have a different color. Left angle to Left angle may have a different color. The color was not the same on both.

    Its the selenoid under the hood. You should be able to pick one up for $25 and you can hook it up yourself very easily! I would buy 2. I always keep one extra in all my trucks. Seems that everytime one of my fishers is acting up changing this part fixes it. Did one last night at 5 am.

    OK I replaced the solenoid...
    It worked for a couple hours and now i am back to square one.
    Could i have gotten a faulty one or is something causing these things to fail...
    I should have taken your advice and bought two :(

    Did you buy a fisher product or the other brand? We used to use the other brand (came in a white and blue pkg) and they would break 3x per season. We started paying a little more and using the fisher brand product and they last about a year. The other brand seems to be under engineered.

    Yes you could have gotten a faulty one, also check your grounds. You may have shorted it if there is a ground loose youll have all sorts of weird problems.
