    I have a western pro plow 3 port 3 plug setup. Today the plow was working fine then i put it down and it wont come back up. When i press the up or left right buttons on the controler it clicks and the controller goes off. Press the power button again and hit up and it just clicks again and shuts off. Any ideas where to start trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated.

    I got lucky it was just the solenoid. Picked one up at Napa for 20 bucks and its working again. Better now than later.
