    Hi everyone, I have had a Unimount for 3 years with the joystick controller. I decided to be prepared this year and put it on my plow truck to change fluid, etc. I mounted it and went to put it up but instead it angled right and stopped. I chained it up to get it moved by the garage. I changed the fluid and if I hand angle it straight it will only angle right no matter what position I move the joystick. Do you think the controller is fried or maybe one of the valves is stuck open?? Help!

    Its happened to me in the past as well. My problem was where the plow side wiring plugs into the truck side wiring. The connection between the 2 was my problem.

    Check all of your solenoid connections

    Got it! After switching to a spare motor then a spare pump I found the blue wire in the plow side was broken. Could have saved alot of time if I found that initially but it is working!

    StumpZ you say that you found a blue wire on the plow side broken. What did the blue wire connect to? I have the same western plow right turning locked problem without a solution. thanks!

    The light blue wire goes to the S3(4way) valve

    S3= angle left and raise
