    If I'm deciphering your grammar correctly, sounds like the S5 valve isn't being shifted for one reason on another. Start with checking the S5 for magnetism while attempting to angle in either direction. If you have magnetism, pull the valve and check to see if it's jammed or stuck closed.

    If you discover that you don't have magnetism, start back tracking the wiring to the grill connector with a test light. You want the blue/orange wire, which is the wire for the S5 coil/valve assembly.

    Make sure the grill connector is fully connected and CLEAN.

    Yep the S5 is the lonely one in the bottom Sam. To check it for mag, pull the cover off and while a helper attempts to angle the plow left and right take a screwdriver or small wrench (anything metal will work) and hold it too the S5 coil. While the plow is being operated you should "feel" the magnetism that the coil is producing attempting to hold the wrench against the coil.....just as if it was an actual magnet pulling on it.

    Be very careful while working around the plow during this test....if she drops on your toes or you get your extremities in the wrong place you'll know it in a hurry. Use caution!

    Just want to throw this out there for you ez-v guys. I had bought a new ez-v two years ago.
    I got through the first winter with no problems at all. Next fall I put the blade on and it would not move the wings. Take it to the dealer and he ask me if I ever had replaced any of the cylinders on the plow. No i had not. Apparently the dealer or Fisher it self used some rebuilt cylinders that where not chromed properly and the chrome pcs. where floating around in my oil. Got into the valves and stopped working.

    Out of the five fisher dealers in our area there is only one good one... Norway Auto and Plow. They never get the stupid problems like this one. sometimes a buisness can be thought of totally backwards.

    Like if it is a big building in the heart of the city... you think, wow, these guys must be good when really they don;t know what the hell their doin! Its the small country buisnesses that know what to do because they get more snow and don't get the salt on the roads... just some good old dirt! They take more pride in their buisness and stand behind their products with out argument!

    Opinion???? It's my company and we are out in bum F*** no where land and we don't advertise at all for the plow side. But we still sell over 100 plows a year and service about 150. When people are at our shop they only talk about how they got rooked over by other companies that didn't know what they were doing. Pride goes into every sale and thats why they don't come back for warrenty. We take precautions. Id tell ya but then everyone else would do the same thing because they are soo helpful in keeping the plow running for long periods off time with out a break down.

    My arm hurts because off assembling soo many plows then installing the frame plates.

    Talking about unbaised opinions... you don't even know who we are of anything about us. Stop trying to look cool by making other people look like crap!!!
