    Plugged the plow in did two back blades in my driveway , now The plow won't move. Power to the lights, solenoid is clicking when the control buttons are manipulated. Plow is still plugged in.

    Give the plow motor a few taps with hammer and see if you can get it going again. If so replace motor.

    Check power and 13-pin plugs for snow/ice.

    The battery feeding the plow, check it as well. The solenoid could be clicking because it doesnt have enough power to click all the way over and feed the pump motor.

    Sometimes the easiest and obvious problems can be overlooked. This happened to mine during a bad storm a couple years back. I lost half the plows functions. Got out and saw the plugs had so much heavy ice and snow on it pulling it out

    I unhooked plow, reattached it to the truck and it started working. Maybe it wasn't grounded well.

    Plow Isn't grounded through the plow frame. If it is, that needs to change.
