    I have an 04 Western on a 2500HD wich i've had since the day I bought both of them new. I got my plow out today and changed the fluid in it. Hooked it up and ran it like I always do. It never used to do this but after I raise or angle the plow side to side, the motor continues to run for another 5-10 seconds after the plow stops moving. Any Ideas??

    Sounds like you have a switch sticking. Something is staying energized when it shouldn't. Do your controls feel any different?

    Usually it's caused by a sticking underhood solenoid.

    The joystick doesn't feel different. The plow still stops on a dime when I let go of the joystick.
