    i own a sno way and mine did this to me in the beginning of the season, it ended up being a bad ground contact, i fixed the main ground comingto the plow from the truck and has worked great since

    What model plow? The previous poster is correct, it does sound like a low current issue. First; Check and clean all your power and ground connections on the truck. If both the ground and power are not hooked to the battery change them. Don't forget the Hi-amp circuit breaker (or fuse depending on the model)

    Could also be a bad 12 volt motor solenoid.
