    Ok I have an older minute mount setup I am trying to get working! When I hit the joystick i hear the solenoid working under the hood but plow motor doesnt work. I have power to the pump motor when I hit the joystick but pump doesnt move or make any noise. I just took the motor off to see if it is siezed and it does turn. I stuck a screw driver in it to turn it. Do you think the motor is still bad? Help!!!!

    Did you check to be sure you have a good ground connection? You can use a set of jumper cables as a temp ground and try it again. If it's still a no go then likely the motor brushes are froze up and/or corroded. You can disassemble the motor and clean the brushes and brush holders as well as give the armature a good polishing.
