    The 760 plow is 5 years old and started to blow the inline power fuse when it seems to be in the float position pushing snow. Reading the threads some are suggesting the s5 solenoid could be the cause. Have checked the plug, re-clean the connectors and applied dielectric paste. Question, how do you check the s5 coil ith the wiring being hard wired. Has anyone had experience with this problem

    replace the coil and valve you will see that it is melted or disfigured somewhat

    Appreciate the reply, just return back to the truck stuck with the plow down on a long drive way. Replaced the control power fuse and was able to finish up the job, not after replacing the fuse 2x more. The fuse when it blow has the plow in the float position after pushing the snow. The mystery to it is that it is not a constant problem, more intermittent??? Starting to shift to maybe a chaffed wire. May have jumped the gun on to the s5 coil.

    listen to beam, ohm out the coil its probably n.g. the early coils were not waterproof,the heating and cooling cycles of this often "on" coil sucks in moisture and fails.you can usually see the plastic melted a bit.it is not impossible that you have a chaffe in the plow of truck harness but the coil is usually the prime suspect.
