    This morning I went out side and I unhooked the sander power from my battery. When i put the battery connection back on the plow motor keeps running. It worked fine before I did this. I am confused. Any help would be great?

    Thanks

    sounds like a stuck solenoid? or suck valve?

    It sounds like what I had a few weeks back -- a stuck solenoid in the pump housing. It's an $18 replacement in about 20 minutes. Good luck!

    Double check your battery connections. If you hooked up the cables backwards the plow will run non stop. Same thing will happen if you hookup the main power connector at bumper up backwards. And yes it can be plugged in backwards.

    I took the sander power off the battery. I even just swapped the power cable to the plow harness to the other battery in the truck. Same thing. I will double check all connections.

    Just remember the xv is a negative shift system. Meaning the negative side of solenoid and valves is the switched side. It has constant positive power to solenoid and valves.

    Try unplugging control and see if it still does it.

    it does it with the truck not even running. I took the plow off to see what was going on and it does it as soon as I go to plug it in. It also tries to lift the plow. Think its a stuck valve?

    This is the same thing boss's XLS did when he plugged power harness together backwards. Also ended blowing 4 amp fuse on plow for solenoid.

    Had to change both of those fuses. Any other ideas? Doesn't make any sense.

    If you are 110% sure all wiring is correct. Unhooking control made no difference. You are down to a bad solenoid or plow module.

    This sucks. I have the controller unplugged also. Yeah, all I did was unhook the power for the sander. I already replaced the module in the plow at the beginning of the year. I changed out the solenoid this morning too.

    I unplugged the power to the module. The little red wire that comes from the solenoid to the plug for power for the module has power all the time. That means its probably the solenoid, right?

    That wire should have power all the time. The small black wire is what sends signal to solenoid from the module.

    Ok so do you think the module is shot then? I am done with it for today. Calling dealer in morn.

    Have no idea. If you unhook the black wire from solenoid and it keeps running it is solenoid. If it does not run then something in the plow module is telling the solenoid to turn on. Did you use a factory solenoid?

    Yes I used a fisher solenoid. Just can't think of anything else it could be. Thanks

    I took off the small wires and it did not run. It sounded like it was just clicking when I went and plugged it in.
