    That is kind of weird.........
    sounds like the connector is not making good contact...Check the connector plug(grill 9pin) and make sure it is clean. if not use battery cleaner(spray) and let it sit for a min or two. If you could blow it out with air..Then put electrical grease inside both plugs..Also make sure when you put them back together they are snug....

    Is the motor squealing when you move the joy stick, or the plow making noise when your turning it??

    it is screaming when i go up down and left right not all the time ...kind of frequently intermittent..when it works it works fine but when it squeals it sounds like it is the motor but i cant see it when im in the truck so im not exactly sure

    you have water in the oil. when enough freezes on the filter it screams do to decreased flow.

    when it gets good and cold again the screaming will start again. change your oil.
