SOURCE: my western unimount plow is stuck in the up postion. it will go down

If you mean it will not go down it is either your switch in the truck or it can possibly be the valve in the system either not working may just be sticking or it could be that its not getting the switches call to change . This is something you will have to hunt down Good Luck. If you are going to plow best learn now how to deal with al of this as it is rough on a truck

SOURCE: How many amps does an older Western plow pump typically pull? I was going to wire in some fuses for my plow and did not want to put too small of fuse in circuit and get stuck out plowing.

do not use fuses use reset able circuit breakers instead

Posted on Oct 23, 2015

Testimonial: "Circuit breakers are not desirable, they degrade with each use, every trip for a fault makes the breaker less reliable, so rather be safe and use the best option a fuse, and reason for post, to figure out correct amperage."

SOURCE: I have a hydraulic Western Plow. I just purchased it from a guy that sells used plows for Western plow, and hooked it up. It will lift, lower and turn right. When it turn right, it goes up.

Take this issue up with the "guy (who) sells used plows for Western".

My 12v haldex snow plow pump it draws so much power it kills the truck it goes up very slow and labored it wont turn l or r it is wired correctly been on truck 3 years ,problem just started

Dear Lawnie,
If you have a plow, that tells me you live where it i cold.
If so, perhaps you have salt used on roads and highways.
That salt can damage your plow, as well as your vehicle.
I think you may have salt or rust damage that is slowing down your pump.
If not, I would suspect one or more of your joints is freezing up.
Unfortunately, I think your plow may not have nuts & bolts to take it all apart and check each and every joint.
Many parts are probably welded together.
See if you can isolate the "stiff" joint or the pump itself for replacement.
God bless your efforts.

Hydraulic fluid doesn't really freeze. When it does, we wouldn't be around to see it. You need to go threw electrical. Go to there web site and see if you can get a diagram for it. Old systems are fairly easy to go threw. Newer ones have PC boards. Older ones, the stick/switches go bad first. But it always wise to loosen, then tighten the nuts that hold wires first. Corrosion sets in because it isn't used for so long.

While driving down road my western snow plow is rocking all over.

not good or safe! check all mounting pins and frame mounts. A lot of force is on snow plows and the frame mounts often need to be welded up. I imagine it is the whole unit and not just the plow.

How do I wire the sylonoid for the plow to work per color coded wires on a uni-mount plow for a 01 Dodge Dakota?

Just follow the instructions. The colors of the wires should be easy to follow and the new wires should match.
