    Ok guys I hooked up like the diagram says.....but as soon as I hit a button on my touchpad the red overload light comes on....I have tried switching some wires on my solenoid with no luck....my solenoid looks different than the ones everyone has showed me...I have two top posts for the power wires (red to battery and red to solenoid) and two smaller bottom posts...the diagram shows that the small white wire from harness goes too the small post on the solenoid....and that the small orange wire from the harness goes too the negative side of the battery .....that is how it is hooked up....im lost.....please help if you can....THANKS!!!

    WOW I hope you do not keep running it contiuous for those three minute or you will for sure toast the motor or more sounds like you have some serious problems are you sure you have it filled with oil?

    My e47 would lift it fairly fast like about 3-4 seconds the e60 like 2 seconds or faster

    check the power draw with a friend activating the pump (its hard to be in two places at once) if your wiring is good and fluid is full you may be starting to lose the motor. Excessive draw may confirm that. Also check for any mechanical blockage by the clevis mounts. I did an install where the clevis mount that came used did not work in the highest hole position because the blade hit the top of the mount stopping it from lifting.
