    Fisher plow setup 3 years old very little use, when used it occasionally sticks (the motor) in neutral I would raise and lower or move side to side and it would stop, it would turn generator light on in dash, today it stuck and and would not stop, it did this 2 times today and killed my power and the truck motor I would have to wait 5 minutes then it would restart, once restarted I unplugged harness up front to get home. Should I undo all my connections clean and lube and retry, or is it solenoid that is Bad? Thanks

    Try cleaning lubeing and checking for loose ground wires. Then if the problem still is around start with trouble shooting the soleniods. best of luck hope it is something simple!

    Sounds like the motor solenoid is sticking,for $15 i'd replace it,from there it could be in your controll or harness.
