    I will try to explain my problem as thorough as possible. If i rise the plow, and let go of the joystick (which returns to neutral). The led turns from green to orange immediately and the plow falls. Now let me tell you what I have already tried. One, tried a friends remote from his one year old plow and had the same problem (which ruled out the remote). Two, routed a normally open switch in line with the down solenoid. So, if the plow was getting voltage, I would be able to read it across the switch (while in the truck). With this test, the switch was reading 12 volts and the plow would not fall until I closed the circuit. This is a quick fix, but looking to fix it the right way. Also, if I raise the plow and continue to hold the up direction and at the same time turn the remote off, the plow will stay up. If I turn the remote back on the led is green and the plow stays up ( the remote is in the neutral position). Any advice appreciated.
