Introduction
The Curtis Snowplow family of products are built and tested for lasting performance. All snowplows are fully tested for
electrical, hydraulic and lighting malfunctions prior to shipping. Any malfunction is corrected immediately at our facility to ensure that
our customers receive a quality product that will last for years to come. As with any piece of equipment, rough service and harsh
environments can lead to poor performance, necessitating repairs.
When diagnosing snowplow malfunctions, it is important to methodically separate and test the different systems that are
utilized on the Curtis Sno-Pro series snowplows. The approach detailed below will greatly reduce diagnostic time and take the guess
work out of troubleshooting. What this means is lower associated labor, fewer unnecessary parts and more satisfied customers.
The following pages contain the hydraulic circuit as well as the electrical system. Each diagram shows a specific function, and what
actually happens when a function is activated. The information will be useful in helping to understand what to look for when
troubleshooting a snowplow malfunction. Each page, both electrical and hydraulic, has a "What Happens" heading at the top of the
page. This will offer a step by step sequence of what takes place internally in the snowplow system once the controller is activated.
This will act as a guide to what to look for as a possible cause of a malfunction.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
NOTICE
Know your own abilities and mechanical skills. Some procedures in the following Troubleshooting Guide require a
considerable mechanical aptitude. Use discretion and refer to an Authorized Curtis Dealer when needed.
The following Guide has been developed to provide a step-by-step approach to Troubleshooting operational problems with
your Sno-Pro/Home-Pro 3000 Snow Plow.
Many functional problems may be solved by first following this General Checklist.
Remove the Filler Cap on the Pump and verify the Reservoir is full of oil.
Check for external leaking and tighten any loose Hoses, Fittings, or Plugs. Damaged Hoses must be replaced immediately.
Check the condition of the Fuse, replace if necessary.
Check the Harness Plug Connector at the front of the vehicle and verify a good connection.
Check the Wire Connectors at the Switch Panel Control or Joystick Control and verify the Wire Leads are secure.
Check the Battery and Solenoid connections under the hood of the vehicle and verify a good connection and ground.
Remove the A-Frame Cover and verify a good ground connection.
If functional problems persist after following the General Checklist, locate the description of the problem you are
experiencing in the Troubleshooting Guide Glossary and follow the course of action detailed under the specific problem.
Suggested Test Equipment:
An Analog 8-Range Multimeter, which can measure DC voltage up to 20 Volts, is preferred for any of the tests described in
z Guide.
Most tests can be performed using a 12vdc-Test Light and/or Continuity Tester.
A 3000-PSI Oil Filled Pressure Gauge will be needed for some of the Hydraulic test procedures.

DIAGNOSTIC METHOD - FIND THE PROBLEM....FAST!
System #1: Vehicle Electrical System:
Related Components:
Vehicle Side Wiring Harness
Battery Lead #4 Gauge
Motor Solenoid
In-Cab Control
Headlight Switch
Headlight Adapter
The starting point for this method is the Vehicle Side Electrical System. The chart below details all of the Plug
Pinouts for the Vehicle Side Harness.
The very first step in this process is to verify a PROPER INSTALLATION i.e. In-Cab Control plugged in and turned
on, all wires connected correctly, good ground connections, etc...
Testing Plow Functions:
Using the diagram below and a test light, activate each function and test the corresponding pin in the Harness
Plug for power. For Lift, Left Angle & Right Angle functions, the Pin for each function AND the Pin for the Pump
Solenoid should be powered at the same time. Activating the Pump Solenoid will also power the 12vdc Hi-Amp
Pin (#2). When testing the float function, only that Pin will be powered. For testing Headlight and Directional
functions, it will be necessary to turn each function on inside the cab. If all Pins test correctly, the Vehicle Harness
System has been eliminated as the cause of the malfunction. If one or more Pins do not test correctly, determine
which device is connected at the other end of the Harness.
For function problems, test the In-Cab Controls. To do this, attach the test light alligator clip to ground and insert the
probe of the test light into the colored wire on the in-cab control that corresponds with the function that is being
tested. Activate the function and test for power. Through the process of elimination, the In-Cab Control will be
determined faulty or in good working order.
®
11
DIAGNOSTIC METHOD - FIND THE PROBLEM....FAST!
If all functions test correctly but no power is being sent to the 12vdc Hi-Amp (Pin #2), test the Brown Wire at the Pump
Solenoid. To do this, activate each function (Lift, Left, Right) and test the Brown Wire connection at the Solenoid with
the Test Light. If no power is present, the Harness may be faulty.
If power is present but the Solenoid is not operating, double check the Battery Cable connections as well as the
mounting surface. The Pump Solenoid grounds through the Mounting Bracket and must have a rust-free, metallic
surface to mount to. If the above has been checked, the Solenoid is faulty. If the Solenoid is transferring voltage from
one terminal to the other when activated, the Solenoid is working properly and there may be an internal malfunction in
the Harness.
Testing Plow Light System: For lighting problems, test the Plow Light Switch first. Turn the vehicle headlights on.
Locate the Plow Headlight Switch and test each wire for power depending on the position of the Switch. If the Switch
toggles between vehicle and plow lights properly, disconnect the Headlight Adapters one side at a time and test the Gray
Packard Connectors for power. See the diagram below for details. If all of the functions test properly, the Vehicle
Harness is in proper working order. Otherwise, there is an internal malfunction in the Harness.
If, after performing the above test procedures, the Vehicle Harness is working properly, remove the A-Frame Cover from
the Plow and plug the Plow Harness into the Vehicle Harness. It is not necessary to re-attach the Plow to the vehicle as
this reduces the work area. It may be necessary, however, to remove the Harness P-Clamp from the Lift Frame Upright
and remove the Wire Ties holding the Headlight pigtails. This will increase the Harness length.
System #2: Plow Electrical System:
Related Components: Plow Side Wiring Harness
12vdc Valve Coils
Plow Lights
12vdc Pump Motor
The next step in the testing procedure is to determine if the Plow Side Harness is working properly.
Testing Plow Functions:
WARNING: DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE FROM THE BATTERY SIDE OF THE PUMP MOTOR
SOLENOID BEFORE TESTING THE PLOW SIDE HARNESS. IF THIS IS NOT DONE, THE PLOW MAY MOVE
ERRATICALLY DURING THIS TEST. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
®
12
DIAGNOSTIC METHOD - FIND THE PROBLEM....FAST!
Testing Plow Functions: Disconnect the Packard Connector for the function to be tested. The Table below indicates
the Color Code for each function. Connect the alligator clip of the test light to a ground source (the stud on the back of
the Pump Assembly). Insert the test probe into the colored side of the Packard Connector (the Orange Wire side is used
for a ground connection) and activate the function. Remember, Lift, Left Angle & Right Angle functions also activate
the Pump Motor (Brown Wire) simultaneously. If the Packard Controller is receiving power when the function is
activated, the Plow Side Harness is working properly.
Testing Plow Light System: For Headlight testing on the Plow, disconnect the Plow Light pigtail from the Harness and,
using the Table below, test for Light functions, i.e. Hi-Beam, Lo-Beam, Common, Parking Lights and Directional Lights.
If the functions are receiving voltage, the Plow Harness is working properly and there may be a malfunction within the
Plow Headlight Assembly. If the functions are not receiving voltage, there may be an internal malfunction in the Plow
Side Harness.
Testing 12vdc Valve Coils: Leave the Battery side of the Pump Motor Solenoid disconnected from the Battery.
Remove the 12vdc Coil from the Valve for the function to be tested. Insert the probe of the test light through the hole in
the Coil. Activate the function using the In-Cab Control. A magnetic draw from the Coil should pull the test probe when
energized. If no draw is present, the Coil may be faulty.
If the 12vdc Valve Coils are working properly, the function problem is most likely a Hydraulic problem.
System #3: Snowplow Hydraulic System:
Related Components: Electric/Hydraulic Power Unit
Hydraulic Manifold
After it has been determined that both the Vehicle Side and Plow Side Harnesses are in proper working order, the next
step will be to troubleshoot the Hydraulic System, with particular attention to the Manifold.
The main function of the Hydraulic Manifold is to direct fluid to the appropriate Cylinder to perform a task.
For Example: When the In-Cab Control is moved to the 'Plow Lift' function, the Pump Motor spins the Pump developing
pressure. This pressure enters the Manifold. The Manifold’s internal plumbing is configured in such a way that if no
Valve is opened, the fluid will return to the Reservoir on the Electric/Hydraulic Power Unit. Activating the 'Plow Lift'
function not only engages the Pump, but also shifts the 'Plow Lift/Jack Extend' Valve to the 'Plow Lift' position. The
pressurized fluid will follow the path of least resistance, in this case, the opened ‘Plow Lift’ passageway. The fluid then
exits the Manifold through the 'Lift' Hose attached to the 'H' Port on the Manifold and the 7-1/2" Lift Cylinder at the other
end. Pressurized fluid extends the Lift Cylinder raising the Plow. Read through the following pages for detailed
Hydraulic and Electrical Circuit information.
