    My fisher ez v is just making a clicking sound whenever I press any of the buttons on the remote but before that it was working fine a few months ago when i tried it out. I hooked it back up last month and it was working but then it started to move slow in all directions and whenever i pressed a button on the fish stik it would totally do something else and it only raised in the V position, I hooked it up last week and only makes a clicking sound and does not do anything..any ideas gents?..thanks

    Sounds like a motor relay to me
     
  3. If it is a year 2000 vintage EZ Vee and its a 2 plug system, he's got the old style relay set up not using an iso mod. They are a nightmare to troubleshoot.

    Misterplow, get a 12 volt test light and start checking for power at the solenoid. If the clicking you hear is at the solenoid, make sure there is power going to the plow pump motor when you activate the controller. If it worked a couple of months ago, I'd be checking for a bad ground or other electrical connection issue.

    No clue how old the plow is but its a 3plug system with the 4port module
     
  5. Sorry about that. There is a very similar thread going with the same issue and I answered the wrong one...duh.

    The first thing to do is check your battery power and ground feed/cables. Is there 12V at the solenoid? Is it the solenoid that is clicking? When it clicks is there output to the motor? CHECK THE GROUND CABLE. Do the plow lights work? Check all the connections, especially the control harness at the grill. Try this and we'll go from there.

    The clicking comes from the motor, i put a test light to the solenoid and the motor and it lights up so im guessing its a bad motor. I changed the control harness on the truck and plow side and still nothing and yes the plow lights work and the fish stik lights up aswell.

    Sounds like a bad motor, my MM1 straight blade did the same thing. Started slowing and drawing more and more power. Once I got the old motor off and looked at the inside it was all rusted to crap.

    I put booster cables straight to the motor and she doesnt even run so i think it all leads to a bad motor, i ordered one earlier and we'll take it from there

    Looks like there's been problems with that motor before - looks like someone's beat it with a hammer a few times to get it unstuck. Just an observation. Bosch makes good electronic parts for vehicles so I wouldn't worry about the name part of it.

    Great, post up your results. Personally I always liked the Fisher brand parts, they seemed to last longer and work better than the aftermarket brands.

    hahaha got ya. Not 100% of the time, but most of the time if your giving the motor power and nothing happens, then you hit it with a hammer and it comes to life, the motor is bad.

    They are basically just starter motors with different caps on them anyways.

    Two bolts at the top, remove the positive and negative cables and it comes right out. Might need a few taps to loosen the base but that's it. Very simple.
