    Put the plow on for about 2 hours tonight to clean up a little drifting and when I was done I went to take the plow off the truck and when I hit the switch to lower the tower it lowered but then when I let go the motor never shut off. It would switch back to raise the tower and then when Id let off it would switch back to the lower mode and would not shut off. Would this be a stuck solenoid? Thats the only thing I can think of. Its about -10 degrees right now so I wouldn't be surprised if its something like that. Any other Ideas?

    mine was a $293.00 controller. Of course it wouldn't be a cheap solenoid! Well now I have just spent dang near more than I have made all winter. lol What a crap-shoot.
