    What pump do you have E47, 57 ,60 or the other newer stuff I can't afford. What was the temp? You could have froze up your fluid if it was cold enough or your fluid is crap and needs to be flushed. I had an issue with that this year when we had a few single digit nights. It will do that when it's 2 degrees.

    If the motor is not operating then you should check all connections to the motor, clean them with some dielectric grease, if that doesn't help then check for a defective solenoid under the hood of the truck, 9 timeds out of 10 that is where the problem is and it is an easy and cheap fix.

    The pump is an E 60. It wasn't that cold. But if the fluid wasn't good shouldn't the motor still run.

    Can you hear the under hood solenoid click when you try to operate the plow? If it does and you sure all the connections are good INCLUDING the grounds, then the motor's defective. If it's a single stud motor, remove it from the pump and check for corrosion between the motor and the pump housing.If you don't find any, look at the brushes and the brush holder's on the end of the pump.Check them for rust or corrosion and look closely at the brush wire's as they like to corrode and break off too.

    The motors generally run $100.00-$140.00 depending on where you buy. If you do replace the motor I highly recommend upgrading to the two terminal motor as they are a much better design. I saw a brand new one on ebay the other day go for $47.00.
