    I changed the fluids and everything worked fine. I raised the plow to move the truck and the plow would not go down. Check the quill and nothing. all wiring looked good. Removed the solenoid and the probe and the plow dropped. Checked the probe to see if it was stuck and it moved. Replace the probe and solenoid and the plow would go up, rt and left but not down. Going to check my solenoid to see if it is good. Any other suggestions I need to look at? Thanks

    Not the solenoid, that has nothing to do with down function.

    With the controller in down/float, check for power or magnatisim at the S1 coil (wht/ylw wire)
