    At work we have 1996 chevy 1500 with a boss on it and when you try to angle the blade side to side or up or down it the motor doesnt stop and then the truck dies out but the plow motor is still running. Any ideas on what this can be. thanks

    Sticking motor solenoid or sticking control function.

    The next time it does it, quickly unplug the controller. If it instantly stops then you have a controller issue. If after disconnecting the controller it continues to run, replace the motor solenoid.
