    The last time a plowed, there would be a few times when I would move the plow, take my hand off the joystick, and the plow motor would continue running. The plow doesn't continue to move, but the motor does run. Doesn't stop unless I jump out and disconnect the power cable and then it seems to reset. This doesn't always happen but occurred a few times. All the connections look good. Any ideas?

    Sounds like the underhood solenoid is sticking. Pretty common.
