    i have a 88 ford f-250 w/ a western 8 ft pro-plow.....and it wont move up/down or left/right
    i have power to my outside lights and i have power to my controller...i have the handheld remote and a regular one so i don't think its the controls,but i believe it may be the relays as i have replaced the solenoid already...thanks in advance....:)

    Does the motor turn on? If not, do you here the relay click?

    The relays other then the large one that hooks to the battery and motor are for your lights only.
    You need to be sure that your connector at the grill is making a complete connection, if so you move onto the plow.
    Then check the coils for magnetizem while operating your controller, and from there if all checks out to see if the cartridge valves are operating.
    You could get by your dealer and have them do a quick check with their harness and control check out box.
