    I just bought this MVP blade from a guy but I'm having an issue with the left wing extending when I hit the scoop button. I ve tried a differ controller so I don't think that's the problem. I downloaded all the litature from westerns site I was going to start testing the s4 coil and solenoid or the p/o valve A. I think it was, but before I begin disasembling can anyone give me any tips or advice? Like how do I actually test the coil and solenoid?

    thanks, it turns out i had to replace 3 cartridges because they swelled up and wouldn't move. I guess when you strike an object hard enough, this can happen due to pressure built up. 500 bucks later its fixed.
