    Sorry Guys; but I keep having this reoccurring problem with my boss plow on a Chevy 2500. After an easy plow; it begins to stutter and go off and on. Then it will eventually just quit moving all together. The lights operate and I have checked my connections. Just had a new solenoid put in 2 weeks ago. When I operate the stick it just "clicks" under the hood. My buddy said he thinks it is a grounding issue.. Your Thoughts:confused:

    Weak connection on the power/ground cables somewhere between the battery and the pump motor. This includes right at the motor under the pump cover, the bumper connector, and the battery terminals. And if it's a self grounding motor (you didn't specify age/motor style) the motor is loose on the manifold. Or the motor is worn out.
