    So I have had this issue for awhile where my plow will just stop responding to my round pin pistol joystick. I would remedy this by getting out unplugging all the wires adding dieelectric grease and then plugging them back in. Today this issue is reoccurring every 5 minutes or less, and unplugging it is only working a handful of the time. I also noticed the solenoid clicks and sometimes the buttons on the controller appear to be different (I.e. up is vee, left moves blade right), so I cleaned the grease from the connectors using brake cleaner and it worked great for another 5 minutes and now nothing seems to get it to raise! Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions... Thx in advance

    Sounds to me like that plug you are removing, greasing and reconnecting is probably failing. The pins or sockets may be corroded or the wires going into the plug may be breaking.

    That was exactly the problem. Not where th cord failed, but when I ran a jumper worked fine. Ordered new cable and works great now! Thx for the help! :drinkup:
