    I have a 1999 western pro plow. My proplem happend right before our last storm. When I hooked up the plow and hit the raise button the plow angled right and stayed right. No matter what button I hit on the remote the plow still only goes right. Has any one ever had this proplem or knows what may cause this. Thanks for your help.

    I have the same plow, same year. Every time there is a problem like that it has been electrical connections. As was said above, re-do all connections, hit em good with dielectric grease, then go from there. It may be that simple.

    If you go to the western web site they have trouble shooting charts there. http://www.westernplows.com

    I had the same problem with mine and like the others said check your connections first.

    The trouble charts helped me out.
