    Test pump pressure.
    If you take both hoses off the pump can you move the plow side to side?

    Check your grounds. This there a black/orange wire coming out of the box and going to the ground post on the plow motor. Make sure that is good. Sounds like none of the solinoids are opening. The motor will run, but if a solinoid does not open, the valve will not allow the fluid to the correct spot.

    Yea cleaned out the filter replaced the fluid checked that ground wire but will do again...... The solenoids have 6.6 Ohms which is right on with specs that i read up on. Now after so much messing with up down left right the controller will only turn the motor on in the up position. Dont have a $2-300 controller laying around but was now leaning to the controler that it wasnt sending a signal to the solenoids only to the main power relay. I was getting pressure out of the lines but not a continues pressure. Thats what has me so thrown for a loop.

    If it is not a continious flow it sounds like a a power/ground is getting interrupted.
    Did you do the individual power tests on each selonoid (sp?)?

    Yea we could not get much more than a flicker on the light test on the solenoids then the controller stopped turning the pump on wasn't sure is it common for these controllers to take a crap

    your s-3 valve is stuck shifted. that's why no up or left right.

    bad connection is causing the control to turn off.
