    You need to check for power to the "black" wire coming thru your grill to the power unit while you have the plow switch in the float mode.
    If not back check your wiring to the switch and the switch its self as why there is no power.
    If you have power then block up you plow and check the rear small coil on the "a" valve for magnetisim with a screw driver, this is tested with the plow control in float again.
    If so carefully remove the coil and valve, remember the valve is under pressure until the plow is on the ground.
    You can then check for anything that may be lodged in the valve and you can clean it with kerosene or brake cleaner.
    Put the coil back on the valve and then hook it to a battery and see if it "clicks" and moves, if not you may tap it on a blck of wood and get it freed up.
    Other wise replacement time for the valve.
