    Can you hear the solinode clicking when you hit the buttons? Could be that. Or a bad connections somewhere. At the bumper. Or a bad ground.

    Well if the plow controller is on and you hit the switches you have a bad solenoid. Make sure to double check the fuses on the plow harness first before doing so. Its cheaper. Theres 1 or 2 depending on how new the harness is at the battery and there will be 1 at the fuse box inside the truck. If those are good then I'd replace the solenoid. Otherwise just check the ground and power cables at the plows pump. Also is not a bad Idea to add some dielectric grease to all the connections under there while doing this either. Its easiest do do them 1 at a time. Take one off and add some grease then place it back on the connection. This way you wont forget what goes where. Also Check the connections at the battery. The plows truck side battery cable is hooked up there. Also the positve. And double check the solenoid connections. My guess is its the solenoid.

    Sounds like it could be a relay. I was having intermittent problems withh my plow not working. I tracked it to a realy that had a small amount of corrosion.

    My plow has been doing this for 2 seasons. I have had the hand held replaced twice with no better results. I have a joy stick also and it seems to happen less often with it. I have had it to 2 dealers and neither could find anything wrong.
