    Help, Im green , And my meyer e47 is taking a major dump on me. It doesnt budge. I can hear the solonoid click every time I go u/d l/r. But nothing gets to the actual unit. I have a new solinoid, new motor and have made sure its not over filled,. Any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks

    Try using a set of jumper cables to ground the pump motor itself directly to the battery, and see if it then works as it sounds like a poor ground problem...

    The jumper cable test will tell you right away if you have a poor ground.

    Did you check all your battery cable connections? Including the ground cable from the back of the pump to the battery? Make sure they're all clean and tight..

    The motors on the E47's don't have a ground post on them so they rely on the sump base and gear pump that they're bolted too to complete the ground path... corrosion between the motor and the gear pump and between the gear pump and the sump base can cause them to lose ground since the ground cable is on the sump base and not on the motor..

    bitter cold.

    I did clean everything,. With the battery test things moved, But still no cab function. The wires and leads are fairly new, and clean. It still has the same response. Thanks for the post, but anything else?
    Were supposed to get a big snow tonight, Id like to work, but the way things are going ???

    If it worked with the jumper cables attached to the body of the motor and the neg post on the battery..then it's not getting ground, plain and simple...that's what the test was for..
