    check your controller even if it is brand new it might still be bad. and as said check all the terminals and connections.

    My experience is from a Western with similar symptoms. It is likely that there is a piece of debris (chunk of an o-ring,seal, etc. ) stuck in one of the spool valves in the valve body. It would cause one spool to remain in the wrong position, allowing oil to flow where its not supposed to. It can be an indication of deeper problems like cylinders that are overextending due to wear at the pivot point in the A-frame. It can pound the seals and the rings that hold them in place, creating the debris that goes through the system and lodges at the restrictive points in the spool valves.

    Sounds like your "B" valve [red wire] is bad. Replace it and test. If it still does it. you need to replace your PA block. I bet it the B valve doing it though. Good luck.
