    Do you know what kind of plow it is? MVP, MVP plus, straight blade, Wide-out? Sounds to me like a valving problem unless of course you can see fluid leaking out. It should say on the back of the blade what model it is, let us know and we can help better / more.

    Straight blade

    S1 and S3= lower

    MVP plus

    Check to see if the valve or valves are spooling (movement), if there is something jamming them from movement, or something blocking the passage way. Also check the wiring at the S coils to make sure they are connect. Check your fluid to make sure it is full.
