    Moisture in the fluid maybe. Mine quit on me yesterday, no up, left or right. Fluid is full, but when I pulled the drain plug nothing came out. I have new fluid and filter, just no time to change it yet.

    Ck connectors at the coils, then at the grill. Your either not getting signal or your valves might be bad

    Mine did the same thing. Was something with my connector. Cleaned it and it worked fine. Worth a shot.

    Thanks for the help guys I'll take a look at your suggestion's when I get out of work today I hope its something easy so I don't have to freeze my *** off longer than I need to... So it could be frozen even with it only wanting to go right with the push of any direction

    It could, but HIGHLY unlikely

    Did a little more research and found this I believe it may be the same blue wire giving me problems it looked pinched right at the cover on the pump but didn't look too bad so I didn't think too much about it

    Had the same problem in last weeks storm. Everything was caked with snow and ice so I could not see what was wrong till I got it inside and melted it off. But I was OUT OF Fluid, due to a leek at one angle cylinder. Could hear pump and relays, but no movement. Fixed leak filled up and good to go.....

    Good Luck

    I have the same problem. I was plowing when the plow was getting twitchy when it was up, when dropped it would go left or right. Then I lost everything, up left and right. The motor is running, blade is not moving. I am getting a gauge from a friend to check pressure a little later. I bought this plow this summer, it had been sitting for years. The motor was rusted solid, the reservoir had water in it, so I removed the entire pump, ram assembly and took out the pump. All the drain and fill plugs were rusted shut. I welded allen wrenches to the plus and got them out. I emptied the rams and got new hoses. I took out the solenoids and put voltage to them and they all worked. I took the pump, without the solenoids and put it in a can of plow oil and ran it with a cordless drill to pump any gunk out. The filter had collapsed and torn from all the crap in it. Put it all back together and it worked for a while. I didn't take out the poppets or the bypass valve. That may have had some junk in there, I don't know.
    I will let you guys know after I put on the gauge.

    Just an update I got it working for now I repaired the blue wire on the solinoid and put a little torch to the pump for a min hooked it back up and it worked then had a little hiccup moved the 3 plug harness around a little and bam worked fine was able to finish my route today... I think the harness is going bad it has a few repairs from the pas owner will probably get a new one
