    I checked the grounds all were ok I guess
    I put on the new solenoid still nothight but to the right..
    I put my test light to the wires at the motor
    with my daughter working the switch in the cab ,right and left there is power to the
    green and white wires at the pump motor..
    no power to the blue wire with the switch moved up and down...
    I also took the hose that goes to the angle ram and pushed it on the bumper to push the ball in and had her work the switch and fluid did come out
    its a western uni-mount
    the motor sounds like its working

    do you have one with the same plow you could try to swap controllers to see if its the problem. Our fisher started doing the same thing the other day. I took the controller apart and found 2 of the solders had come undone. easy fix and saved me $300 for a controller

    I dont know if westerns are similar to meyers...But I had a similar problem with my meyers.
    I took out the B and C valves and simply pushed the pistons in w/ a small screwdriver to free them up, Fixed my problem.

    Good luck with it.
