    I don't know, since the down pressure button forces the blade down by hydraulics and yours lifts instead, I would guess your hoses are reversed or your wiring is, but I'm not a rocket scientist

    What model Sno-Way do you own? What is the serial # on the aframe? Does the plow have a switch on the side of the pump cover for mounting assistance?

    Let me know on these questions and I am sure we can help you get this figured out.

    Could be a couple things, I'd start with.

    Wire(s) disconnected
    Failed DP coil
    Bad/stuck Dp valve

    First check to see if all the wires are attached to the coils and switches under the cover.

    Check the DP switch to assure power there

    then check for power to and magnetism at the DP coil.
    if you have power/magnetism then you'll need to remove the valve and check to see if it's stuck. If so use a small blunt insterment to try to free it up.

    As Toby4402 already commented we need to know what unit you have to be more specific.
