good afternoon my name is***** am a western plow dealer, how can i help you?
when left is commanded does the pump run? or is completely dead?
ok in order for left swing to happen S3 and S2 coils need to come alive. you should have a plastic cover over the solenoid pack. S@ and S3 are the 2 solenoids that are stacked on top of each other. make sure there grounded properly and are both getting 12 volts (check with a test light NOT and digital meter) 9 out of 10 times when this issue happens it is a bad coil, or a bad connection at the plug
attached is a link showing the coils to check
did that link work for you?
possible to test with a test light?
poppet check valve would be my next stop. look at page 52 in the manual i sent.
you can have 9 volts at the coil and create magnitism but not have enough pull to open the coils. that is why i advise using a test light to verify voltage at the coils
you could also remove the S3 cartridge and verify that it is moving the valve inside. if you remove and reinstall the coil, hook to 12 volts you should hear and feel the little needle valve click and shuttle. on this older style you cant swap them around because all 3 of them are a little different. we know S2 is working because you have right tilt and S2 is in common with that. SO.... its a S3 issue or a poppet check valve stuck i would say
did you have any luck on this?
good afternoon, sorry to bother.... can i can out this case?
were you able to resolve your issue?
