    i have a 7'6" western uni mount on my 95 F350 Dump. The Plow wont go up, down or left, right. The plow relay is clicking and the battery relay is also clicking when you try to move the plow. i recently took off the motor and pump and i cleaned the filter and replaced the fluid. when i put it back on the plow was working perfect with no problem. next morning i came out and it was doing this. i traced wires and there is no visible problem.
    Someone please respond with some help! its only a backup truck but itd be nice to get it going.
    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like you need to check your motor.

    You need to check and see of if you are getting 12v out to the motor. Start there and try to get the motor spinning.

    Try the seach button. There is tons of info for reading already within the site.

    ck your gnds,,,if its not going dwn,,might just be a bad gnd. start at the truck, then work your way to the plow. if thats good, then ck the gnds at the coils, then ck for pwr at the coils while operating the controller

    make sure the plug-ins are connected good and check for power out at the plow when someone is holding the joystick in the UP position

    Its probably your power plug. Try wiggling it while someone moves the controller.
