    If you connect a screwdriver to the two big terminals on the solenoid, the plow motor should engage. You won't get any movement, just the plow motor.

    Maybe it is...Maybe it also could be the motor..Maybe it could be the wires on the solenoid being corroded. Or just maybe, the controller might not be making a good connection at the plug...

    Boy oh boy Repo........finally got one light setup figure out on that thread..If you and I were charging, we be broke....And yes, I had a snicker...........
