    I posted a pic of the wiring setup on the above link take a look see if it applies to your setup.

    Do you have power at the "A Coil"
    You should feel some magnetism on the back side of it with a screwdriver.

    The coil may have failed if you can't feel any magnetism, and you have 12V at it.

    You may also have some junk blocking the valve operation if you do have magnetism.

    You might also want to loosen the big packing nut on the top of your lift ram, to see if it's stuck there.

    Thanks again Mebes
    The coils that operate the vave was ok. But I had to pry it of and unscrew the valve under it .
    The screen filter was full of dirt.
    I decide to flush the dirty oil out and melt the ice inside by removing the drain plug and the two other beside, after I put them back and fill the unit white diesel, operate the piston up and down 3 times and drain it.I made this operation one more time and removing the coil operated valve one more time the screen filter was dirty again and put back fill the unit wih almost I pint of power steering fluid reinstall it in front of the 4.4 and everything work perfectly.
