    Used my plow for the first time since dealer installed, everything works good,except the dashboard dummy lite came on telling me to" check my gauges". Noticed my voltage gauge was jumping around between C/H. Pulling too many amps?? bad connections , motor ,any ideas?

    C&H is the temp gauge. Your amp gauge should normally be around 13 or 14 volts. If it drops under 12 could be your battery. What is the battery age. Otherwise it could be your alternater. Not likely a bad ground however, it could be.

    C/H is the voltage gauge with pic of battery. The battery is 2 years old.
