    So I am new to this but I have recently gotten a boss vplow 8.2 ft. Lights work up down left right v and scoup work ...I have a joy stick controller and the smart hitch works , i use a handheld controller and it does nothing for the smart hitch once the plow is on everything works great. ... i did notice sparks when unhooking...i added a ground from the pump to the engine block and added extra ground from selonoid to engine block....i still notice a small spark once in a while but the hand held remote still will not work the smart hitch...and yes i have it in float mode where it turns red :). joy stick always works on any of these combinations for grounding options. any ideas :)

    Does it spark when you don't put it in float? And remove the plug

    No only sparks when it is unhooking/hooking while using smart hitch. It is a older plow possibly 2004 ish. I heard that I should make my own ground from pump to all solenoid on plow as they are grounded to them self and thru frame. ?

    Ck your plow gnd wire to start with. Where you have it attached on the trk.
    But sounds like there's current flowing and not operating a motor
