    Well look first at the underhood solenoid. Is it the "proper" type and how many wires are going to it?

    it is the right solenoid... the plow power wire then positive cable to battery then the 2 small post on the solenoid have the 2 wires for the controller harness and a wire from one of the small post to neg side of battery

    Well what I would do next is remove the pos out to plow cable. Take your test light to that post and toggle the plow up,left,right and see if you have test light. If you light stays on when you release the clicker either solenoid is bad or wiring or clicker
    Is it a 4 stud solenoid?
