    I have a 2000 yr 7'6" super duty mounted on my 2008 F-350 SD. This morning Pulled the truck out of the garage the plow worked fine , went to put back in garage tonight plow will not lift up. Checked the plug in it had a good connection,plenty of dielectric grease on it ,plug was dry,all connections at solenoid were tight, just had this plow installed last month,still have not pushed any snow here in INDY. Got ant Ideas ? It has been raining of and on all day today

    no power

    i would check the red black power plug to see if it has closed up were it is slotted in the middle of the pin ,it might not be making contact good .
    if sou then take a thin bladed screw driver and spread both red and black pins carefully .:salute:

    Yep. I had to bend the connector over and zip tie it. I will try opening those pins. Most likely the power plug.
