    Ok so here's the deal, first thing in the morning when I get ready to go plowing.......like clockwork......i start the truck, turn on my headlights and go to lift the plow and the solenoid clicks prob like 10-15 times before it lifts. After that it works fine all day long.......waddya ya guys think the problem is?

    I have my remote tied into my my parking lights, because it's the only switchable source I could find.

    My ground for the motor is grounded to the outside of the A Frame

    Any help would be great!

    Sounds like a bad solenoid. That's typically what they do when they go. Just because it's clicking doesn't mean it's working. They're not very expensive or hard to replace either...
