    I have a mm1 and everthing to do with wiring is brand new,the plow will only go down from the controller it will not move up,left,or right unless you hook a jumper pack on the positive and negative to the pump and then it works, The only other way to make it run from the controller is to arc the red cable running from the pump to the solenoid and then it wants to always go to the right and it like winds up the pump if anybody could help that would be great thanks

    Did you jump the two large posts on the solenoid? Could be bad.

    Check grounds

    Spread the 2 male prongs apart that are in the cable that comes from the motor(pump) There is a slot in each one.

    No I just put a booster pack on the positive and the negative on the pump and it worked, but when everything is hooked up the way it is supposed to be all you hear is clicking when you push left,right,or up on the controller it will go down and thats it.and it did spread the two prongs and it didn't help any. I don't know what else to do like I said it only works when you arc the red cable from the pump to the solenoid is the only time it will run from the controller inside the cab

    Even more reason to ALWAYS keep a spare one around.

    12 buck spare part can save you alot of money should you need it midstorm.
