    I have western 8 ft straight blade that will move up down and right but wont move left. It doesn't even make any noise when you move the controller to the left. Any ideas. We are getting another controller to try here in a while. I need help because we have to head back out in the morning.

    Check the S5 valve......Check to see if it will magnetize. If it does, remove the valve and check to see if there movement by hand.might be debris inside of it.. .If not, check the wire for power. Could be a problem in the connector or the controller harness. Check the plugs (connectors0 to make sure they are clean and making good contact.. As for the controller harness, move the stick to the left, and wiggle the harness under the dash..If it moves, you have a bad connection..Unplug the control harness and spread the pins slightly to make better contact when mated.

    What the heck is an S5 valve on a straight blade? :drinkup:

    It isn't a plow side or harness issue, it's a controller issue. If it isn't even triggering the under hood solenoid only for the left angle function then the controller isn't sending the signal out when only that function is pressed...because there's only one UHS activation wire for ALL functions.

    We can all relate to that at one point or another. Mostly during the snowy months. :sleeping: :waving:
