I have a Fisher HT series plow. Only way to raise it is first holding the lower button for a few seconds which turns off the green light and turns off Float mode. If I try to raise it without holding the lower button the motor and pump will wine like its trying to raise it but it does not move at all. Left and right work fine, plow up or down. When it does raise it goes right up quick.

any ideas

That's a new one. And weird.

So I take it the plow is staying in float when you try to raise? Is the float light staying on on the controller when you hit raise?

My guess would be a defective controller, but I've never heard of that happening. It could possibly be the plow module as well, as I am not sure if it maintains float in the controller or the module on a FleetFlex setup.

yes, the green light is on unless I hold the Lower button for a few seconds

from the manual I found online,

RAISE
Press this button to raise the snowplow and
cancel the FLOAT mode. Function times out
after 4.8 seconds

so it appears the float mode is not canceling for some reason when I press the raise button???

So, it has to be either a control module or controller...

Exactly. As mentioned above, I am not positive as to which is responsible for maintaining float. On the older plows, the controller keeps the lower valve activated. On the multiplexed plows, I do not know if that is still the case.

Turn key off. Then back on, does it raise right away? Go to the dealer and see if they ave a way to test your controller, or one you can use for a test.

That is a good suggestion. There is a tester available for the multiplex controllers now, so definitely worth calling around

Please, the adults are discussing plows here. Isn't there a 60 year old truck rotting somewhere, waiting patiently for you?
Did I hit a nerve? My ‘57 FGBS’ plow works... I guess a classic centralized hydraulic system running a pump off the engine is more reliable then electronics... shocker.

But getting the truck started is a 3 hour job, so I guess it's a wash
And yet all one needs to do is just turn the key and 855cubic inches of Cummins Dieselly goodness roars to life every time... crazy concept— right— that something old could work.

What makes me laugh is your diagnosis is the same anyone can make from reading the installation manual. I would think you might have more insight into the testing process of the problem.

Walter ,

Shut up.
No one cares what makes you laugh
just knock it off with the ducking crap about your goddamn ducking truck
Why to post about it in every ****ing thread

Your pics all the snow was a bunch of bull****
it was driving around and on dry roads and it wasn’t even of your truck it was somebody . else’s.

It was a little teeny-weeny booger of snow on the plow it looks like you ran into a snowbank.

So in closing unless you actually have something constructive to add other than
Did you: call the dealer ...

And none of us give a **** about your truck there aren’t any vids or pics of it plowing snow

Now you’ve ruined yet another thread bringing your piece of junk truck into it
will you let somebody help somebody else who actually knows what they’re talking about

Snoblower,

I just stated a fact it appears that classic engine driven pto based hydraulic pump with mechanical controls is more reliable than electronic systems? Not mention a 100 times easier to diagnosis and fix. Which was in response to Cwren2472 not you. So, get overself...

Shut up

Again no one cares about your system
Nor is it relevant.

It is a ASSumption on your part
That one is superior to the other.


So shut up and let crew help the guy.
