Plow goes up and down but won't go side to side
Not knowing what plough it is and what it is on my advice is just the general basics.
If it is hydraulic check the fluid level. Check under the motor and blade for evidence of any leaks. Examine all the pipe work for splits and damage. Next turn the plough on. Listen to it carefully. Does it sound like it is trying to move?
These checks will help you work out where the problem is most likely to be. Problems like low fluid, worn or damaged pipes, damaged fittings, faulty motor, faulty flow valves.
Electric units are a basic case of check the motors and getting power and working, and the electrical wiring isn't worn or damaged.
Hope this helps.
Cars & Trucks
I have a 2007 GMC Envoy, was running rough,got a code to replace my msf sensor and plugs,disconnected battery replaced sensor & plugs in order.connected my battery,now it's running worse than before.
Some cars/trucks/SUVs need about 30 miles of driving time to load all the new parts you replaced info into ecu so somtimes runs rough until that process is clear . Also there are different ways to reset your cars computer . The best way I found to be really effective is disconnecting both battery cables and connect a jumper wire between them . But make sure they are clear or the battery of course . Leave the jumper connected for a few minutes then hook em back up and start your engine and go drive around for 20 minutes . Another way is to disconnect the POS. battery cable and turn everything on inside while holding the brake pedal. What it is by doing all this is draining the stored power in the computers capacitors that keep the memory fresh . You want it to forget the defective part and recognize the new one .hope this helps you I know how frustrating these things can be.

Pontiac Montana 2004 Leak
I turned on the fan inside and closed everything up, went outside and poured soapy water around everywhere. I found bubbles at the mirrors and and the top of the windshield. Also a "Tech" told me that under the door rubber at the driver and passenger sides there is a piece of tape that is supposed to cover two assembly holes on either side but doesn't, so I caulked it and solved the leak that comes out the map lights. I also found that there was a crack in the sealer along the firewall to passenger inside fender allowing water to collect int the wiring channel causing the dreaded "lock" problem, which I had fixed by the dealer but they didn't fix the leak. The dealers and "Jet-set Execs"are the reason GM is hurting as their vans are OK. The fix was spraying RV Roof\Gutter sealant from the front after removing the wiper cover and spraying waaay in. Now I need to fix the one on the front that comes in above the passengers left foot and makes a spiders haven behind the centre cowl. Jim
