    so im 100% new to this stuff and i just bought my first plow a few days ago and i got everything hooked up and i was putting the actual plow on to the truck and i moved the thing up and down to see if it worked and it did, moved up and down, then i connected the whole thing and then i pressed the up and down and nothing happened. It was just the clicking noise. like how does that happen? i need to know asap so any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    new or used plow? Sounds like a wiring issue, could be a solenoid too

    OK, its a sno-way plow. Used. But could it realy be a wiring issue? i mean it worked one second and then the next it didnt. all we did was press a button.
