V plow controller issue

    Hey guys & gals; trying to get my backup truck ready for the mini blizzard coming tomorrow- when I turn on my boss controller, it immediately goes into lift mode unless I push the down button, & that overrides it, but the pump is still running to try & lift the plow, until I turn off the controller. Replaced the solenoid under the hood, but still didn't fix it. So I plugged in my controller from my other truck & no issues. So that tells me it's the controller.
    Anyone had this happen before? Any ideas? :dizzy:
    I will try & take the controller apart later tonight to see if I find anything inside. I really don't want to spend another 200+ for another controller........

    Just to make sure it's the controller, plug the bad one into your other truck and see if you still have problem on the other ttuck.

    Assuming it's a Boss controller, you can buy the red up down switch, not to hard to replace.

    Buy another controller and while you are at it, buy a spare motor - those are two parts that will stop you dead in your tracks with no work around in the middle of the night. - Solenoid too.

    Great service. We just that him repair a western v plow controller last month. Quick service, fair price, can't ask for much more. Plus it's always nice to have a spare controller.
