    try taking the other side off and putting it on the right side ,and see if it moves.I have also checked mine by moving the wires from one side to the other and see if the joystick will move that side.if it will most likly you have a bad solonoid ,if not then there is another problem to try to find.

    good luck! I HATE ELECTRICAL ISSUES!!!

    You could also reverse the hydraulic hoses on the wings. I had a problem with a wing creeping back last year and that is how I determined wether it was a bad cylinder or valve body. GOOD LUCK

    don't forget to clean and lube all grounds and plugs. I find that dirty contacts and grounds go before a continues duty solinoid.
