Plow won't lift or angle forwards

    One of our 8'2" Boss V-plow isn't lifting or angling forward. The plow will lower and retract.

    We've switched trucks, switched controllers, tested the connections and the heavy guage wire supply to the motor.

    There is a "clicking" noise when you press any of the control buttons. I don't know if the noise is coming from the valves or selenoid, or what. Pretty sure the clicking sound is normal.

    Any ideas for what to try next?

    Thanks

    If you've even switched trucks and the motor still doesn't run for the requested functions then either one or both of the power cables are loose on the motor, or the motor died.
