    Plow worked great last season. Just pulled it out today and I can only get to plow to lift up. I cleaned all the electrical connections... I do not hear any solenoid click when I try to angle or lower the plow. What should be my next step?

    Thanks

    Can you try a different controller?

    What i would look at next would be the controller connector. The pins "close" and then make internment contact

    Is there a way to "Open" them back up?

    The controller is the male, razor blade or exacto knife works good.
    The other is the female. Those are a pain, but you could try to squeeze them together a little. Be careful, there delicate.
    Double check where you have the controller power hooked up, and the fuse as well.

    Ok, just played around with the connector and nothing has changed. When I first plugged in the new controller it worked fine and then jut quit after cycling through the controls a few times... I'm stumped, the plow is stuck up and I cannot get it down.

    You have a partner that can help?
    I would block up the plow so it don't fall. And then remove the coil cover, and test light the wires on the coils while a function is being pressed.
    If your float is coming on when you press down, you can still test light that. Still blocking up the plow tho.
