    I have a 2004 chevy 3500 silverado. I recently got a fisher plow installed and since than my dump body will not raise. I called up the dealership that installed it and they said that there is no way it could have been there fault. I just dont' know if I should believe them or not. It just seems like a big coincidence to me so I was wondering if anyone with more knowledge on the topic could let me know if installing a plow could effect these electronics. Thanks

    maybe they unplugged the dump power, to hook up the plow power.

    Will the pump cycle and not go up, or is it there is no power when you push the button? If its an elec/hyd pump tract the power wires back to the battery. It wouldnt be into the fuse panel because it is a very large wire.
    My 2 cents

    I think it is a power problem. When I push the button I hear nothing.

    Do you think it will cost a lot to get it fixed?

    depends on what it is.....relay cost twenty bucks and you can probably replace it yourself
