Function Time Outs

All control functions, except for

LOWER, automatically time out— stop—after a period of time. This is to help prolong the battery charge. The time-out period for the RAISE function is 2.5 seconds, while all others are 4.25 seconds.

The control will automatically turn off after being idle for 20 minutes.

SMOOTH STOP

The control automatically allows the blade to coast to a stop. This results in smoother operation, reduces the shock to the hydraulic system and increases hose and valve life.

Nine of the ten hydraulic functions require energizing the electric motor, shifting of solenoid cartridge spools or activating p/o check valves. The tenth function, lower, does not energize the motor but requires shifting of solenoid cartridge spools.

Operation of Electrical Circuit:

The electrical drive circuit that is used for the MVP snowplow hydraulics is defined as a low side drive system.

to complete the circuit, energizing the selected coils and/or relay. The current flow through the coils produces a magnetic field which shifts the spools in the cartridges.

The cartridges direct the fluid flow to the appropriate passages to produce the selected blade movement function. Current flow also energizes the motor relay, closing the motor relay contacts connecting the motor to the battery through heavy electrical cables. The heavy cables carry a

Testing Low Side Drive Systems:

To test a low side drive system, connect the negative lead of the test instrument (volt meter) to ground and the positive lead to the negative side of the load (coil, relay, etc.). A reading of 12 volts should be indicated when the load is not activated. A reading of near 0 volts when load is activated.

Lit. No. 21857 June 15, 2003

THEORY OF OPERATION

Plow Headlamps

The headlamp circuit operates using a high side drive system. High side drive provides a hot 12V source to activate the loads (coils, relays, etc.) that share a common ground. The headlamp switching circuit uses two single pole double throw (SPDT) relays. When combined with the snowplow plug-in headlamp harness and the vehicle harness, the relays will automatically switch between plow and vehicle headlamps as the plow plugs are connected and disconnected.

The vehicle harness has a brown wire that is spliced into the vehicle park lamp circuit. This wire feeds the plow park lamps through the grill connector and also powers the coils of both relays. The other terminal of the relay coils is connected to the black/orange ground wire which also goes to the grill connector. When both the plow and battery cable plugs are connected to the grill connectors, a ground is completed for the relay coil. When the vehicle park lamps are turned on and the plugs are connected, the relay coils will be activated. This causes the relay contacts to switch from the normally closed contacts to the normally open contacts. The normally closed contacts power the vehicle headlamps. The normally open contacts power the plow headlamps.

Refer to the Headlamp Test Diagram in the Troubleshooting Guide.

It should be noted that:

• The relay with the yellow, orange and black wires operates the low beam headlamps.

• The relay with the green, red and white wires operates the high beam headlamps.

• The parking lamp circuit provides power to both relays at the same time.

• Both plow plugs (12 pin and battery cable) need to be connected and the headlamp switch must be on for the relays to activate.

Daytime Running Lights

An additional fused pink wire is used in place of the brown park circuit wire to introduce power to the light relays.

The pink wire is connected to a circuit controlled by the vehicle ignition switch. When the vehicle ignition is on and the grill connector plugs are connected the relay coils will be activated. This allows the DRLs to be switched to the plow lights when the vehicle headlamp switch is off. DRLs use the same circuit as the regular headlamps.

Testing High Side Drive Systems:

Connect the negative lead of the test instrument (voltmeter) to ground and positive lead to the positive side of the load. A reading of 12 volts should be indicated when the load is activated; zero volts when load is not activated.

HYDRAULIC AND ELECTRICAL SCHEMATICS

The following section contains hydraulic and electrical schematics to help explain how the hydraulic unit performs the different functions. A schematic is an abstract drawing showing the purpose of each of the components in the system. Each component is represented by a graphical symbol. The hydraulic and electrical legends list and describe each of the symbols used in the schematics for this guide.

The first two schematics show a general overview of the complete hydraulic and electrical systems. The remainder of the schematics have been altered to highlight flow of hydraulic oil and electrical current for each function the hydraulic unit performs or flow of electrical current for the snowplow and vehicle lights.

• Bold lines represent the circuit being activated only.

• Shaded components are either activated or shifted from their normal position.

Even though both sides of the cylinder piston will experience the same hydraulic pressure, the cylinder will extend due to unequal force. The difference in area between the base end and rod end of the cylinder piston creates a greater force on the base end which extends the cylinder. Force = Pressure X

STRIKING AN OBJECT WHILE PLOWING FORWARD – HYDRAULIC

Blade Movement: Striking an Object

While Plowing Forward

Controller Mode: All Modes

Controller Button: None

System Response:

1) Hydraulic oil is trapped in the base end of the right cylinder by the right primary relief valve, right secondary relief valve, and P/O check valve (D). Hydraulic oil is trapped in the base end of the left cylinder by left primary relief valve, left secondary relief valve, and P/O check valve (C).

2) When the plow contacts an object on the front side of either wing, the force of the impact increases the hydraulic pressure in the base end of one cylinder.

When the pressure exceeds

3000 psi, the cylinder’s primary relief valve opens allowing some of the hydraulic oil to move from the base end to rod end of the same cylinder.

3) Due to the unequal displacement of oil between the base and rod ends of the cylinder, hydraulic pressure will continue to increase. When the pressure exceeds 3500 psi the cylinder’s secondary relief valve opens allowing the remaining hydraulic oil back to the reservoir.

Introduction

This guide consists of a series of tables, diagrams, flow charts and other information. When used properly it will assist the mechanic in identifying and repairing faulty system components. Western highly recommends the use of the

MVP ® Electrical Tester as a timesaving option for electrical system diagnosis. When using this tester, refer to the supplied instruction manual for proper use of the tester.

Any malfunction of the MVP snowplow can be categorized as either mechanical, electrical or hydraulic. Mechanical issues are generally related to the blade wings,

A-frame, lift frame and mount components and are usually identified by visual inspection. Electrical and hydraulic issues can be difficult to trace to the component level and that is the purpose of this troubleshooting guide. Read and understand the

Theory of Operation before attempting troubleshooting.

How to Use the Troubleshooting

Guide

Because of the relative complexity of the MVP snowplow electrical and hydraulic systems, many variables need to be eliminated in order to obtain workable test procedures.

These variables translate into conditions listed before the tables or flow charts and must be satisfied before proceeding.

If the listed conditions are not met, the procedure can result in inaccurate results and wasted time.

In many cases, satisfying the listed conditions alone will solve the problem.

1.

Go to the General Diagnostic

Table and satisfy the ten listed conditions. These conditions must be met before proceeding into the table or to any subsequent test.

2.

Locate the condition in the table which best describes the problem and check possible causes and actions in the order listed.

3.

Proceed to a service procedure, another condition, or a specific test as directed. All tests except the Hydraulic System Test use a flow chart format. To use these flow charts, first satisfy any listed conditions at the top of the page.

Then begin at the upper left square and proceed as directed.

4.

Follow along sequentially through the table and tests, referring to the hydraulic and electrical schematics in the Theory of

Operation section and the component Identification and

Location diagrams. Eventually the problem will be pinpointed at the component level.

46

Electrical Testing

Read and understand the section describing electrical circuit operation in the Theory of Operation section. A simple 12V test light with a ground lead can be used for circuit testing.

When directed to check for 12 volts

(12V), ground the test lamp lead and probe the terminal. When asked to check for ground, attach the test lamp lead to +12V and probe the terminal.

Note that 12V is a nominal value. If using a voltmeter, actual voltage will vary with the vehicle and presence of loads in tested circuits.

Lit. No. 21857 June 15, 2003

GENERAL DIAGNOSTIC TABLE

Before using this General Diagnostic Table, or performing any tests, you must verify the following conditions:

1.

Snowplow is attached to vehicle and all harnesses are connected.

2.

Harness connector pins and terminals are free of corrosion and coated with dielectric grease, insuring good connections.

3.

Vehicle battery and charging system are in good condition and battery connections are clean and tight.

PACKING NUT ADJUSTMENT

NOTE: This adjustment applies to the lift cylinder only. Angle cylinders use gland nuts which are torqued to specifications.

Periodically verify the lift cylinder packing nut is tight. If the packing nut is loose or leakage appears when raising the plow, tighten the packing nut 1/4 turn maximum after you feel the packing nut contact the packing.

CAUTION

Do not overtighten the packing nut. Over-tightening affects the operation and life of the packing.

Packings not used for a period of time may show signs of oil weep.

This should stop after use.

NOTE: A small amount of leakage is necessary to properly lubricate the rod.

RELIEF VALVE INSPECTION AND ADJUSTMENT

Relief valve inspection

1.

Remove the valve stem, ball, spacer and spring.

2.

Look for broken or damaged parts, contamination or missing or damaged O-rings.

3.

If OK, place ball on hard wood block, hold stem seat on ball and lightly strike stem with a hammer.

CAUTION

Be careful to strike stem squarely. You can bend stem if you do not strike it squarely.

4.

Reassemble components into manifold block. Apply a light coat of anti-seize or grease to stem threads.

Adjustment

1.

Adjust by tightening the relief valve stem as much as possible

(until spring is fully compressed)

2.

Back off valve stem (rotate counterclockwise) the number of turns indicated in the chart.

PILOT OPERATED CHECK VALVE INSPECTION

1.

Remove check valve assembly from manifold block. Using long/ slender needle nosed pliers, remove the spool from the bore.

2.

Using a plastic, aluminum or soft brass probe, push on the ball in the end of the check valve. It should move freely, then return to the closed position. If the ball sticks open or closed or binds, replace the check valve assembly. Clean, repair or replace as necessary.

Be sure replacement service p/o check valve assemblies have the letter ”V” stamped on the hex.

Inspect the spool for signs of wear or any

P/O Check

Valve damage indicating it is not shifting. Look for worn or damaged O-rings and repair or replace as necessary.

3.

Re-oil all O-rings and reinstall the spool by holding the stem with the miniature needle nosed pliers and carefully inserting it fully into the bore. Install the check valve assembly and torque to 120 in-lb.

INDIVIDUAL SOLENOID COIL TEST

SOLENOID CARTRIDGE VALVE INSPECTION

NOTE: S3, the SV08-43 cartridge valve is identical to the S2 and S5

SV08-40 cartridge valves in physical appearance. These two valves function differently internally and cannot be interchanged. The only way to tell them apart is by looking for the stamping “SV08-43” or “SV08-

40” on the side of the hex.

1.

Remove coils from the solenoid cartridge valves and remove the valves from manifold. Look for visible contamination or damaged seals. Check for stuck spools with a plastic, aluminum, or soft brass probe by pushing on the spring loaded internal spool from the end of the valve. The spool should move freely through its entire travel.

NOTE: Using probe to move spool may shear contamination which was affecting spool movement.

2.

Bench test the cartridge valve by installing a coil on the stem and applying 12V and ground to coil.

Watch through the side ports for internal spool travel.

If the cartridge valve spool is stuck or its travel is restricted, replace the cartridge. If the cartridge valve appears to be in good condition, clean it with parts cleaning solvent and dry with compressed air, being careful not to damage the seals. Check the spool travel again in case any internal contaminants were dislodged during cleaning.

Re-oil the cartridge valve seals and o-rings and reinstall the cartridge valve, torquing to 10 ft-lb.

Install the coils and torque retaining nuts to 4-5 ft-lb.

Apply 12V and ground to coil

NOTE: If contamination is seen in more than one component, it can be reasonably assumed that the entire system is contaminated and in order to perform a proper repair, the entire hydraulic unit must be disassembled and cleaned. The hoses and cylinders must also be disassembled and cleaned. The source of the contamination must be located and repaired before reassembly.
