    I just put my Myers plow on today. I went to hit the control to raise it, nothing. my control will light up but once i try to raise the plow it kill the lights and a light in the right hand corner. I was getting a click on the relay on the fender well until i clean the connect now nothing. any i deal.

    Check the orange ground wire for starters , as well as the ground connection to the pump , if you have a 2 stud motor there needs to be a ground from terminal D1 to the sump base as well as a ground to the battery , A2 is the positive from the solenoid.

    Also check the condition of the connections on the red, green, and black bullet connectors as well as the grounding of the coils.

    I asume this was a working unit at one point?

    Could be something as simple as a motor gone south on you , did you try to hot wire the motor and see if it runs ?

    Hey Tom

    how would you do that, take a battery hook up pos to pos and neg to neg and the motor should run??

    If it is a 2 stud motor , positive to A2 , Negative to D1 . Motor should run . You should probably loop the angle hose ports as it will try to make pressure to left angle by default. By looping the angle ports fluid can flow unobstructed .

    If it is a single stud motor , negative to the sump base , positive to the motor terminal.
