e47 plow won't move only clicks

    I have a Meyers E47 on a Dodge Power Ram. Hooked it up for the first time this season and nothing. When I toggle the switch to raise/lower or angle I only hear clicking. I checked the connectors and hoses and the hydraulic fluid and they seem fine. (I replaced the connectors last year when the plow wouldn't angle right).

    I searched a bunch but didn't find any specific answers. Any ideas on how to start diagnosing this? I am pretty new to plowing. The plow is about 20 years old and this is only my second season with it.

    Any help on how to troubleshoot would be great.

    Thanks

    jump the 2 big posts on the solenoid, if the motor runs ya got a bad solenoid, if not, jump a wire direct from positive on batt to motor if it runs you have a bad connection or wire, if not check ground connections if all ok i would say the motor pooped out
