    I have an f350 with a western ultra mount 2001 plow I was plowing the other day and it was working fine then it just died in the up position. I thought it was the solenoid so I changed it along with the harness,the plug ends the joy stick still can't get it to work .Dose anybody know what else I can do

    It's not the same, but anytime I've had problems with my MVP, it's been the wiring in the handheld controller itself.
    I changed controllers this year because the plow would sporadically stop working many times during a single plow. Switched over to a spare controller, and the plow works fine.

    What exactly is it doing? Does it make any noise at all? Does the controller backlight come on? Did u check the basics like fuses and grill plugs?
    More detail would help. St. or MVP? How many plugs in isolation module, 3 or 4? Or does it have two grill plugs and relays?

    Will it go down? Can you hear solenoid clicking when you press up left or right? Like said above. It could be a controller issue. I have a wire problem in my controller that causes the plow to not move every once in a while
