    I have a Western pro plus 2004 and having problems with it. For starters the plow will not raise, or angle. We took it to our dealer and they did some work on it replaceing the cartridge valves and the coils. Then they replaced one of the plugs. We have a 3 plug plow(three plug ins). We also put a new isolation module and it did nothing, we also changed the fluid(dextron 3). The plow is still bad. If you can give us some advice that would be awesome.

    Does the motor run? Use jumper cables to run power to the motor if it doesn't.

    Check ground going to neg motor stud from the coils. Have you tried another control? Which harness did dealer replace? Make sure the bumper plug with 3 pins is clean.

    Had a MVP do same thing. Had to replace pump. Motor would run but plow wouldn't do nothing. Ended up having one of the little gears on pump cracked and broke.

    Motor, pump, rams. Motor runs the pump, pump pumps the fluid to the rams.....via valves and other good stuff
