    Is the motor running when you hit the switch?....If not, the solenoid is likely bad....or wiring

    Should be on the other end of the wire that goes on the motor....under the hood. Looks like this......

    Bad idea to replace the twin stud with a single, and an aftermarket no less. Pretty much like going backward.

    Run a set of jumper cables to the motor, grounding one cable directly to the motor housing. Will it run now? If not clip your other positive jumper cable to the stud on the motor. Does it now run? If so it's a poor connection or bad under hood solenoid.

    But if it doesn't do anything then the motor is shot.

    is the solenoid part of the meyers plow or truck? truck starts and runs fine, I did what b & b said thats why I belive its the motor, When I took the motor off, it fell apart, and it looks like one of the bushing springs broke

    The solenoid is part of your plow package...It is mounted under the hood usually and supplies power to the motor.......I think you have found your problem if the motor fell apart.......Was probably a cheapo knockoff.
