    Help please.

    Prepping plow for storage tonight. Hooked up controller and plow was working. Disconnected and shot contact cleaner in the handset and harness. Reconnected. Light came on - no plow action any direction. Cleaned and retried. same. Now cannot get unit to even turn on.

    Rechecked power connection. Good. Checked hydraulics and all connections.

    Any suggestions.

    Be sure the plug has seated correctly.

    Turn the ignition on and try it again.

    If it still isn't working check the fuse in the trigger lead from the fuse block.

    Try fuse, or the plow solenoid under the hood.

    Do You get any clicking noise?
    Try using a large HD screwdriver to jump out the main electric solenoid under the hood. If the plow raises, you probably have a faulty solenoid. I have an aftermarket part # for a bit heavier unit, but I don't have it at hand at the moment, feel free to e-mail me, I will get the number to you.
    The manual has some good trouble shooting tips, or try customer support at Sno-way, they have been a big help to me.
    I have a Lobo V and love it!!
